'I had become by this time fond of good books, and that gave me life. I read the Epistles of St. Jerome, which filled me with so much courage. . .'
St. Teresa of Jesus
'"In the company of the innocent, you will be innocent; in the company of the elect, you will be elect; and in a crooked man's company you will go wrong." [Ps. 18:26,27]
Let us, then, follow the innocent and the upright. They, it is, who are God's elect.'
Pope St. Clement I of Rome
