Feast of St Josemaria, part 2

We celebrated the feast of St Josemaria today at 10am Mass. The `Mass kit` seemed to go down well. In preparing I came across this quotation from St Josemaria which made me smile.

I remember now, quite clearly that when I was a young priest I used to be given, quite often, two firm rules for `getting ahead`: the first was not to work, not to take on much apostolic activity because that would only give rise to all kinds of envy and enemies. The second was not to write, because what one writes, even if written with precision and clarity, is usually misinterpreted. I thank God that I never followed that advice and I am happy I did not become a priest to `get ahead`.
