A Year with the Saints – 9 June


Every Sister, on entering religion, should leave her own will outside the gate, in order to have no will but that of God. – Saint Francis de Sales

Saint Dositheus said of himself that from his first entrance into religion he completely gave up his own will, subjecting it in everything to that of his Superior, to whom he also revealed all his temptations and all his desires. And he added that in this way he had attained such peace of heart and tranquillity of mind that nothing could ever disturb him.
