The Portal of the Mystery of Hope (1905)
Trans. David Louis Schindler Jr., 1929
- The faith that I love the best, says God, is hope.
- Opening line.
- In my servant the ant, my tiny servant, who hoards greedily like a miser.
Who works like one unhappy and who has no break and who has no rest.
- I am so resplendent in my creation.
That in order really not to see me these poor people would have to be blind.
- Faith is a loyal Wife.
Charity is a Mother.
An ardent mother, noble-hearted.
Or an older sister who is like a mother.
Hope is a little girl, nothing at all.
Basic Verities (1943)
- He who does not bellow the truth when he knows the truth makes himself the accomplice of liars and forgers.
- "Lettre du Provincial", 21 Dec 1899
- Tyranny is always better organised than freedom.
- "War and Peace"
- The sinner is at the heart of Christianity. No one is as competent as the sinner in matters of Christianity. No one, except a saint.
- "Un Nouveau théologien" (1911)
