In debates, if you say a few words about religion you will prevail. Let

person who has a different opinion give free rein to his thoughts

and speak as much as he likes… Let him sense that he is addressing

himself to a calm and uncontentious person. Influence him through

your graciousness and prayer and then speak briefly. You achieve nothing if you speak heatedly and tell him, for example, What you’re saying

-untrue, a downright lie!’ What will you achieve? Be as sheep among

wolves. What should you do? Show indifference outwardly, but be praying inwardly. Be prepared, know what you are talking about and speak

boldly and to the point, but with saintliness, meekness and prayer. But

in order to be able to do this you must become saints.


Love towards Christ is without limits, and the same is true of love to-

wards our neighbor. It should radiate everywhere, to the ends of the

earth, to every single person.
