Alexander de Rouville

The heavenly Father wanted to be glorified by the hidden life of Jesus, and Jesus Himself preferred that obscurity to the miracles He could do.  In this way He taught us that perfection and merit do not always consist in doing great things for the Lord, but in occupying ourselves, if it be His will, in daily toil and in humble duties which the world scorns.

He wanted to show us that we deceive ourselves if we believe it takes extraordinary deeds for a man to become holy.
