"Your zeal for the children who are under your guidance would be very imperfect if you exercised it only by instructing them;
It will only become perfect if you practice yourselves what you are teaching them.
Example makes a much greater impression on the mind and heart than words, especially for children,
since they do not yet have minds sufficiently able to reflect,
and they ordinarily model themselves on the example of their teachers.
They are led more readily to do what they see done for them than what they hear told to them,
above all when the teacher's words are not in harmony with their actions".
(Meditations for the Time of Retreat, 203, 2).
Live Jesus in our hearts!
