school1837xEditor’s Note:  In his book, The School of Jesus Crucified, Father Ignatius of the Side of Jesus, Passionist, outlines 25 points as a “Practical Rule of Christian Life for Daily Observance”.  We will publish one a day:  “Begin your daily occupations with the intention of fulfilling the Will of God.  Be careful at the commencement of each action to offer it to Our Lord in union with all His labors, fatigues and sufferings; and to have a pure intention of pleasing God, of promoting His glory, and of fulfilling His holy Will in all things.  You will not suffer thereby more fatigue, but, on the contrary, far less, and your actions will all be meritorious.  Great is the fatigue, frequent are the failures, and numerous are the annoyances experienced through the want of such pious intentions.”
