“Meditation is a hard word. It generally implies the power of following our trains of reasoning, a power not ordinarily developed in early years. But the young can look and observe; they can watch a person’s actions and follow a simple narrative of his life, especially if truthfully and vividly set before their eyes”…“Where the heart is pure, and the imagination unsullied, the quick wit of childhood, raised and helped by grace, is easily interested in such a Person and life as that of Jesus.” …

“But where are the true Christians who cause their religion to be blessed, and not blasphemed? Alas! they are rare in the world. And why? Because the greater number of Catholics have only a surface religion, without any substance, and entirely devoid of the two great pillars of a supernatural life—prayer and sacrifice. With Christians leading an interior life, the future will belong to Christianity.”
