Extracts from spiritual talks ( 03.07.2007 )

By obedience, the heart becomes more and more sensitive to the life of others, to their sufferings, their progress, and their needs.


It is by serving, and not by dominating, that one becomes like Christ. Christ showed the way during the Last Supper. He was the Lord and He washed His disciples’ feet.


By obedience, your heart and your mind will expand to the dimensions of infinity.


By obedience, we become extremely attentive and aware, even when we are fast asleep.


It is by obedience that one fights the passions, by obedience that no passionate thought can hold us enslaved.
