  • Serve the Lord joyfully! [Servite Domino in laetitia!][1]
  • "If young people are educated properly, we have moral order; if not, vice and disorder prevail. Religion alone can initiate and achieve a true education."
  • Be cheerful, do good, and let the sparrows chirp.[2]
  • Not with violence, but with words.
  • I'll wait for all my young people in heaven.
  • Those who pray take care of the most important of all.
