MARTYR'S MAXIMS (2)
BE not partial for favour, lucre, or malice, but according to truth, equity, justice, and reason.
Be pitiful to poor folk and help them to thy power, for then thou shalt greatly please God.
Give fair language to all persons, and especially to the poor and needy.
Also be diligent in giving of alms.
In prosperity be meek of heart, and in adversity patient.
And pray continually to God that you may do what is His pleasure.
Also apply diligently the co-operations of the Holy Ghost whatever thou hast therein to do.
Pray for perseverance.
Continue in dread, and ever have God before thine eyes.
Renew every day thy good purpose.
What thou hast to do, do it diligently.
'Stablish thyself always in well-doing.
If by chance you fall into sin, despair not, and if you keep these precepts, the Holy Ghost will strengthen thee in all other things necessary, and thus doing you shall be with Christ in Heaven, to whom be glory, laud, honour, and praise everlasting.
" She conducted the just through the right ways and showed him the kingdom of God, and gave him the knowledge of holy things."— WlS. x. 10.
