Quote of the Day (St. Vincent Ferrer, on Charity, ‘The Greatest of All Virtues’)

“If you truly want to help the soul of your neighbor, you should approach God first with all your heart. Ask God simply to fill you with charity, the greatest of all virtues; with it you can accomplish what you desire.”—St. Vincent Ferrer (1350-1419) quoted in Jill Haak Adels, The Wisdom of the Saints: An Anthology (1989)
