If our proposals are rejected: That we will obey with the full knowledge and the deep conviction that not only Superiors but we too can be wrong and that we do what is best when, through obedience, we lovingly fulfill even what is contrary to our views and inclinations. (Art.45)
For fidelity to our vows and the spirit of the resurrection.
For the gift of wisdom for our Superiors.
For all families and those families struggling to survive.
(I resolve) to write only at God's bidding and relying on his grace, drawing everything from it through prayer and humility... (Solesmes, 12/18/1837)
