How many useless thoughts, how many superfluous preoccupations, which whirl around our own ego and fill us during one single day ! How many journeys there and back do we do mechanically in one single day!
What efficient means it could be to educate us by ourselves if, by a thought of love, we should help a suffering soul! They are going to be very grateful for that, and in their Blessed state (in Heaven), they will help us in our work to save souls. For our part, this compassion serves us as merit, and the Most Holy Virgin changes it in good for souls.
