'Let me ask myself to whom my thoughts turn oftenest - God or self?
As I go about my daily tasks, passing from one place to another,
thinking, so to say, of nothing -
What is the nothing?
What is the subject of my daydreaming and castle-building?
Is it how I might help Christ to save souls and defeat satan, or
how I shall add to my personal comfort and happiness?'
(from Fervorinos from the Lips of the Master, compiled by a Religious, Pelligrini, Australia, 1940, p. 57)
