“The Lord grants to every baptized person the necessary grace to reach the summits of divine charity. The small events of the day have within them an unsuspected greatness, and by living them with love towards God and towards one’s brethren, it is possible to overcome from the very start any split between faith and daily life” (Pope John Paul II, Address on “The Grandeur of Ordinary Life”)

“[T]he Church… insists first of all that the virtue of penitence be exercised in persevering faithfulness to the duties of one’s state in life, in the acceptance of the difficulties arising from one’s work and from human coexistence, in a patient bearing of the trials of earthly life and of the utter insecurity which pervades it…” (Pope Paul VI, Apostolic Constitution “Paenitemini”)
