A Year with the Saints – 10 October

Entry

Whoever manages his affairs with artifices and subterfuges offends the providence of God and renders himself unworthy of His paternal care. Saint Vincent de Paul

This glorious Saint kept always at a distance from all artifice in everything he said and did, and left scheming, as he often said, to the prudent of this world.

The same is true of Saint Thomas, Saint Bonaventure, Saint Charles, Saint Mary Magdalen de’ Pazzi, Sister Maria Crucifixa and others, as we have elsewhere shown. All of these prospered in their affairs and were much esteemed and favored for their frankness, not only by God, but also by men.
