“May your virtue not be noisy.” –St. Josemaria Escriva

I don’t know where to start with this one except to say ha ha ha ha this Saint made a funny LOLOLOL!


In all seriousness, though, haven’t we all occasionally run into those people whose sanctimoniousness practically oozed out of every pore and threatened to contaminate everything within a ten yard radius? Maybe that’s even been us once upon a time… (Oh, the shame!)

Nothing drives people away from God better than annoyingly pious people who make a big, loud deal about how holy they are. Sigh.

I’d like to try to be more like St. Teresa of Calcutta. She only had two changes of clothes! (That is unrealistic for me, but it’s still a nice idea.) And, although I know holiness radiated from her, she was so quiet about it that it spoke for itself. Can we say #LifeGoals?
