Have no fear of robbers or murderers. Such dangers are without, and are but petty.
We should fear ourselves. Prejudices are the real robbers; vices the real murderers.
The great dangers are within us. What matters it what threatens our heads or our purses? Let us only think of what threatens our souls…
A preist should never take any precaution against a neighbor. What his neighbor does,
Let us confine ourselves to prayer to God when we think that danger hangs over us. Let us beseech him, not for ourselves, but that our brother may not fall into crime on our account.
