God is more pleased by one work, however small, done secretly, without desire that it be known, than a thousand done with desire that men know of them.
St. John of the Cross
Beatiful quote!  It's much better to save the reward for our good deads until the next life, then to reep all the benefits in this one.

Blessed Edward James
Myrtyr.

Edward was born at Breaston, Derbyshire in England. He was brought up as a Protestant, studied at Saint John’s College, Oxford, and converted to Catholicism as an adult. He studied as a seminarian at Rheims, France and Rome and was ordained in 1583. He returned to England to minister to Catholics covertly. He was arrested and imprisoned for four and a half years with Blessed Ralph Crockett. He was hanged, drawn, and quartered on 1 October 1588 at Chichester, West Sussex, victim of the anti Catholic fury raging at the time in England. His crime? Being a priest.
He was beatified on 15 December 1929 by Pope Pius XI. His canonization is pending.
Blessed Edward James,
Pray for us!

It is a lesson we all need. To let alone the things that don't concern us. He has other ways for others to follow Him. All do not go by the same path. It is for each of us to learn the path by which He requires us to follow Him.

'See, my children, if we really wish to be saved we must determine, once for all, to labor in earnest for our salvation; our soul is like a garden in which the weeds are ever ready to choke the good plants and flowers that have been sown in it. If the gardener who has charge of this garden neglects it, if he is not continually using the spade and the hoe, the flowers and plants will soon disappear. Thus, my children, do the virtues with which God has been pleased to adorn our soul disappear under our vices if we neglect to cultivate them. As a vigilant gardener labours from morning till night to destroy the weeds in his garden, and to ornament it with flowers, so let us labor every day to uproot the vices of our soul and to adorn it with virtues. See, my children, a gardener never lets the weeds take root, because he knows that then he would never be able to destroy them. Neither let us allow our vices to take root, or we shall not be able to conquer them.

One day, an anchorite being in a forest with a companion, showed him four cypresses to be pulled up one after the other; the young man, who did not very well know why he told him to do this, took hold of the first tree, which was quite small, and pulled it up with one hand without trouble; the second, which was a little bigger and had some roots, made him pull harder, but yet he pulled it up with one hand; the third, being still bigger, offered so much resistance, that he was obliged to take both hands and to use all his strength; the fourth, which was grown into a tree, had such deep roots, that he exhausted himself in vain efforts. The saint then said to him, "With a little vigilance and mortification, we succeed in repressing our passions, and we triumph over them when they are only springing up; but when they have taken deep root, nothing is more difficult; the thing is even impossible without a miracle."

Let us not reckon on a miracle of Providence, my children; let us not put off till the end of our life the care that we ought daily to take of our soul; let us labor while there is yet time. . .'

Consequently, heretics and schismatics, separated from the unity of this Body, are able to receive the same Sacrament, but with no benefit to themselves; indeed, more to their own harm, in that they are judged the more severely rather than being liberated.

He came amongst His own and His own received Him not, and it hurt Him then and it has kept on hurting Him.
The same hunger, the same loneliness, the same having no one to be accepted by and to be loved and wanted by.

A theme of instructive St. Augustine quotes!

O my God,
 I firmly believe that you are one God in three Divine Persons,
 Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;
 I believe that your Divine Son became man,
 and died for our sins,
 and that He will come to judge the living and the dead.
 I believe these and all the truths the Holy Catholic Church teaches
 because You have revealed them,
 who can neither deceive nor be deceived.
Amen!
