Maxims Series 16 – 20
More than 360 years ago, Father Jean Pierre Médaille, SJ, composed one hundred short sayings to help the first Sisters of St. Joseph grow in virtue and help all to develop the habits of heart and mind that were “in Christ Jesus.” They were called Maxims of the Little Institute. The adaptations displayed here come from Sister Susan Wilcox, CSJ Brentwood, and her college students.
For about a year we have posted one of these Maxims on our Instagram page each week: https://www.instagram.com/csjboston/ So that these are more available to all, we are creating short slide shows with five maxims. These will be posted every two weeks. Take time to reflect on the maxims below. Come back and reflect on them again. You can also follow us on Instagram or Facebook to see our “Maxim Monday” posts as they appear each week.
