Statue of Saint Dominic in the Church of Santa Sabina in Rome

Today's Quote:

There is no experience so bitter for the generous and high-minded as that of being misunderstood. There is nothing which is so wounding to the sensitive heart as having the purest, noblest, most unselfish efforts towards good, not only not appreciated, but even misjudged and regarded with suspicion by those in whose interests these efforts have been expended. This is the experience which invariably falls to the lot of God in His dealings with souls. God is the Great Misunderstood.

      - Father Edward Leen, C.S.SP. (1885-1944)
