Fr. Job and the Use of Scripture

Scripture in Letters - Job: 1 Corinthians

1) 1 Cor. 3:6-7 Job

2) John 15:4-5

3) Matt. 22:37-38

Poor School Sisters, 1) if your labor of planting and watering in the young garden of God is not to be a vain and futile effort: if the young plants and trees are to flourish at your hands, - you must live and labor in, with, and for God. 2) If, like sound and hardy vine-branches, you desire to produce good fruit, you must remain united with the Vine, that from Christ, you may derive sustenance, life and strength, 3) clinging to Him with your whole heart and soul, mind and strength.

"Neither he that planteth is anything nor he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase, writes the Apostle who wrought and suffered most for the cause of Jesus Christ."

1 Cor. 9:27 Job

If St. Paul, the Vessel of Election, says of himself: "I chastise my body and bring it into subjection, lest, perhaps, when I have preached to others, I myself should become a castaway," then, indeed you, Poor School Sisters, living in similar circumstances, while engaged in the education of the dear little ones, cannot and will not exempt yourselves from doing penance.

1 Cor. 13:4-7 Job

Charity is valiant, patient, kind; charity seeketh not its own advantage, nor alloweth itself to become embittered; charity beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
