PersonalGodCartoon

“All of the defects in a man’s nature which cause him to fail in his original vocation are rooted in a perverted relationship to God. Man can fulfill his most noble vocation which is to be the image of God only if he seeks to develop his powers by subordinating himself humbly to God’s guidance.”

– Edith Stein, The Separate Vocations of Man and Woman According to Nature and Grace
