“The only worthwhile striving is after the highest ideals: If you aim for an easy target, your standard will inevitably decline, and no progress is ever made, except through real effort and real suffering.” - Servant of God Fra' Andrew Bertie                                                                                                                                                 "Work as if everything depends on you, pray as if everything depends on God" - Saint Ignatius of Loyola

Puer qui natus est nobis, plusquam Propheta est, 
hic est enim, de quo Salvator ait : 
inter natos mulierum non surrexit major
