A word from Angela Merici

A good tree, that is, a good heart as well as a soul inflamed with charity, can do nothing but good and holy works.  For this reason Saint Augustine said: Love, and do what you will, namely, possess love and charity and then do what you will. It is as if he had said: Charity is not able to sin.  (from the Spiritual Testament of Angela Merici, 1470-1535)
