“It was said of St. Catherine Laboure that some sort of electric current [existed] between Catherine and humble people, between her and children. Those who were puzzled or embarrassed went to her as if she were a beloved granny, a staunch member of the household – but would later leave the ‘old lady’ when they had learnt to fly with their own wings.”

– St. Catherine, I admire the good influence you had on others, especially the ability to empower them to become self-sufficient. Teach me how to do this in my relationships.
