“In the study of that Divine Word I learned that to obtain successful workers, not elaborate appeals for help, but first earnest prayer to God to thrust forth labourers, and secondly the deepening of the spiritual life of the Church, so that men should be unable to stay at home, were what was needed. I saw that the apostolic plan was not to be concerned about ways and means, but to go and do the work, trusting in His sure word who has said, ‘Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.’ ”
