How shall I manage, you seem to ask, to act always in a spirit that leads me to finish all my professional work perfectly? The answer comes not from me, but from St Paul: 'Work courageously, be strong. And let everything you do be done in a spirit of charity' . Do everything for Love's sake and do it freely. Never give way to fear or routine. Serve God Our Father.
Having put them very much to the test, I am very fond of repeating these artless but very expressive verses:
My life consists in loving,
And if with loving I'm familiar,
'Tis because I've sorrowed much;
For there's no finer lover,
Than one who's suffered much.*
Go about your professional duties for Love's sake. Do everything for the sake of Love and (precisely because you are in love, even though you may taste the bitterness of misunderstanding, of injustice, of ingratitude and even of failure in men's eyes) you will see the result in the wonders that your work produces — rich, abundant fruit, the promise of eternity!
It happens, however, that some people (who are good, or should we rather say 'goodish') pay lip service to the beautiful ideal of spreading our faith, but in practice they make do with a superficial and careless professional output. They seem scatterbrained. If we happen to come across such Christians, we should do our best to help them, affectionately but uncompromisingly, having recourse where necessary to the gospel remedy of fraternal correction: 'Brethren, if a man is found guilty of some fault, you who are spiritually minded ought to show a spirit of gentleness in correcting him. Have an eye upon thyself, lest thou too be tempted. Bear one another's burdens and so you will be fulfilling the law of Christ.' (Friends of God, 68-69)
 1 Cor 16:13‑14
* Mi vida es toda de amor y, si en amor estoy ducho, es por fuerza del dolor, que no hay amante mejor que aquel que ha sufrido mucho.
