The Wisdom of St Philip Neri

God’s Providence
All of God’s purposes are to the good, although we may not always understand this, we can trust in it.

God takes an especial delight in the humility of those who believe that they have not yet begun to do good.

Cheerfulness strengthens the heart and helps us to persevere.

A servant of God ought always to be in good spirits.

Charity and cheerfulness, or charity and humility, should be our motto.
