“Which are the foundations of sanctity? We may answer in a single word, Jesus Christ is the model, the grace, and the end. He is the necessary model, in Him we must view the virtues in order to comprehend them. A virtue is. but the reproduction of some one of His actions, the imitation of Jesus Christ in some one of His acts. It is all very well in theory to define virtue in itself; but to understand it, and above all to reproduce it supernaturally, it must be studied in Jesus Christ, otherwise we see and perform only natural virtues.” -St. Peter Julian Eymard
