Let us never forget —
Obedience is the noblest and most beautiful of virtues.
It is the daughter of humility —
the nurse of Charity —
the companion of justice —
the guide of all religious virtues —
the mother of concord and kindness —
a safe and calm harbor,
a perpetual and delicate bouquet of the soul.
At the end of life, Obedience will open to us a sure entrance into heaven.
It is the key to every door.
