“It is in the company of Jesus that you work for the glory of God.”
St. John Baptist de la Salle
(the sedum begin to get a tinge of color / Julie Cook / 2020)
“Man was created for a certain end.
This end is to praise, to reverence, and to serve the Lord his God and by this
means to arrive at eternal salvation.
All other beings and objects that surround us on the earth were created for the
benefit of man and to be useful to him, as means to his final end;
hence his obligation to use, or to abstain from the use of, these creatures,
according as they bring him nearer to that end, or tend to separate him from it.”
St. Ignatius of Loyola,
