No Complaints On Sick Calls

May 14, 2020

On another occasion, whilst the Blessed Sacrament was being carried a great distance to a sick person, Philip [II] accompanied It all the way on foot. The priest, observing this, asked him if he were not tired. “Tired!” replied he, “behold! my servants wait upon me both by day and by night, and never yet have I heard one of them complain of being tired. Shall I, then, complain of fatigue when I am waiting upon my Lord and my God, Whom I can never sufficiently serve and honor!”
