Do You Stink?

[St. Catherine of Siena] refused to tolerate any faintheartedness in the service of God.  She was utterly convinced that when the salvation of souls was at stake being unduly tolerant or understanding with mediocrity was totally unacceptable, because it is in effect only a concession to laziness or cowardice. 

“Enough of all this soft soap!, she cried out.  “All it does is cause the members of Christ’s Spouse to stink!”
