Of true Religious life

I would rather have a small measure of the grace of God as a Religious in Religion, than have many grace from God as a secular living in the world; for in the world are many more perils and hindrances, and far fewer remedies than in Religion.
I would choose rather to be in the secular state, continually and devoutly desiring to enter into holy Religion, than to be clothed in religious habit without exercise of good works, but persevering in sloth and negligence. And therefore ought the Religious ever to strive to live well and virtuously, knowing that he can be saved in no other state but that of his profession

This is a great saying about the religious vocation.
