IT is a trite saying that a kind word, a gentle word, costs nothing. Yet nothing is so precious, and, alas, nothing is so rare.

Use gentle words, for who can tell
The blessing they impart?
How oft' they fall (as manna fell)
On some nigh fainting heart.

E who leads a good life has a friend in our Divine Lord; and having such a friend, what has a man to fear? No earthly misfortune can diminish the love of Jesus Christ. Earthly friends may turn from us, but the love of God remains.

Be Thou my Friend, my close companion ever!
Earth's paths diverge as comrades onward
Friends may depart, but Thou, O, leave me

Be Thou my friend!

WHAT is resignation? It is putting God between one's self and one's grief. The Christian's cup may be brimful of sorrow, but, for him, the over-flowing drop is never added.


IF we knew the inner life of many of the people we meet, we would be very gentle with them and would excuse the things in them that seem strange or eccentric to us. They are carrying burdens of secret grief. Let us remember that we are bidden by the Apostle to bear one another's burdens.

Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the blossoms,
Kind deeds are the fruits.
