Day 227 of 365 Days With God

All who undertake to teach must be endowed with deep love, the greatest of patience, and, most of all, profound humility. They must perform their work with earnest zeal.

He will console them in the fulfillment of this most noble duty, and finally, will enrich them with the gift of heaven.

—  Saint Joseph Calasanz
