Each of us has his own endowment from God, one to live this way, another in that. It is an impertinence, then, to try to find out why St. Paul was not give St. Peter’s grace, or St. Peter given St. Paul’s There is only one answer to such questions: the Church is a garden patterned with countless flowers, so there must be a variety of sizes, colors, scents — of perfections, after all. Each has its value, its charm, its joy; while the whol vast cluster of these variations makes for beauty in its most graceful form. —Francis de Sale
