August 6, 1806 ~ St. Madeleine Sophie to Mother Duchesne: You exclaim, "How good God is!" - but that is not enough. You also must become good. Our Lord wishes to entrust His work to souls who prove their love for Him by earnest fidelity in acquiring the virtues of the saints. Humility, meekness, charity, patience - these must characterize the true missionary.
