'Ire may be understood in two ways.

In one way, as a simple movement of the will that inflicts punishment not through passion, but by virtue of a judgment of the reason: and in this case, without a doubt, lack of ire is a sin. This is how Chrysostom understands ire when he says: "Ire, when it has a cause, is not ire but judgment. For properly speaking, ire is a movement of passion. And when a man is irate with just cause, his ire does not derive from passion. Rather, it is an act of judgment, not of ire."

In another way, ire can be understood as a movement of the sensitive appetite agitated by passion with bodily excitation. This movement is a necessary sequel in man to the previous movement of his will, since the lower appetite naturally follows the movement of the higher appetite unless some obstacle prevents it. Hence the movement of ire in the sensitive appetite cannot be lacking altogether, unless the movement of the will is altogether lacking or weak. Consequently, the lack of the passion of ire is also a vice, as it is the lack of movement in the will to punish according to the judgment of reason.

'What, my brothers, do you see nothing but the rags of these poor creatures? And do you see nothing beneath the rags but the poor creatures themselves? St. Gregory gave to a man in rags, but the man was Jesus Christ Himself.'

'Your cross is indeed great! Thanks to our only Good, Who holds you on the cross! O beloved cross! O holy cross, tree of life, whence springs eternal life, I salute thee, I embrace thee, I press thee to my heart! Ah! these are the sentiments which ought to animate us in our trials. Courage, then! Courage! Under so heavy a weight human nature will waver, it is true; but the soul will taste a sweet peace in the bosom of God.'

'He who cannot make up his mind to give up all for Christ ought at least to refer all to Him; and to consider the highest honors as infinitely inferior to that one only thing which our Lord and Saviour has declared necessary.'

'If it be the duty of a Christian to pray to God before meals, he is not less bound to thank him after having made use of the gifts which came from his bountiful hand. It is, therefore, necessary to make, after every meal, a short but fervent act of thanksgiving.'

'He is a true and genuine Catholic who loves the truth of God, who loves the Church, who loves the Body of Christ, who esteems Divine religion and the Catholic faith above everything: above the authority, the regard, the genius, the eloquence, the philosophy of every man whatsoever. He is a genuine Catholic who continues steadfast and well-founded in the faith, who resolves that he will believe those things -- and only those things -- which he is sure the Catholic Church has held universally and from ancient times.'

'Let us then not be ashamed to confess the Crucified. Be the cross our seal, made with boldness by our fingers on our brow and in everything; over the bread we eat and the cups we drink, in our comings and in goings out; before our sleep, when we lie down and when we awake; when we are traveling, and when we are at rest.'

'Let us make ourselves as children with Jesus, hiding ourselves in our nothingness; let us be humble and simple as children by an exact obedience, by purity of heart, by love of holy poverty by a love of sufferings, and, above all, by childlike simplicity in the faithful observance of our rules and constitutions, and let us not take the liberty to interpret them broadly nor in any other sense than their own. Narrow is the way that leadeth to life. Let us allow ourselves to be guided and used by our superiors, whom God has placed over us for our government and direction. Thus we shall be true imitators of the Child Jesus, Who abandoned Himself in everything to the care of His Mother, the most holy and immaculate Virgin Mary. By these beautiful virtues you will render yourselves worthy to partake of the banquet of angels.'
