Saint Anthony Quote - The Saints Are Like The Stars

"The saints are like the stars, who, in His providence, Christ hides under a seal, lest they appear whenever they wish. Instead, they are always ready to disembark from the quiet of contemplation into the works of mercy at the time decided upon by God, whenever their heart should hear the word of command."

-St. Anthony of Padua, Sermon for the Fifth Sunday after Easter (Part III: De Christi omnium scientia, par. 10)
