If you treat them right, the Germans will give you everything. Many err in matters of faith, but without arrogance.

An honest explanation of the faith would be much more effective than a polemical attack against reformers.
Be obedient, charitable, meek and humble toward each other. Saint Franca Visalta’s admonition to her nuns on her deathbed.
