An Even Disposition

At Saint Clement Hofbauer Chapel in Pattaya, Thailand

“Make straight the ways of the Lord” (Is 40:3; Mt 3:3; Mk 1:3;Lk 3:4; Jn 1:23), that is, acquire an even disposition by the mortification of your passions, inclinations, and aversions … These are the ways we should even out for our Saviour’s coming. To do this well, we must go to the school of the glorious Saint John the Baptist and place ourselves, or rather ask him to receive us, among his disciples. For he sent his disciples to be instructed by our Saviour personally.
Saint Francis de Sales
