St. Ignatius Loyola quote

Do what you can calmly and gently.  Do not be disturbed about the rest, but leave to God's providence what you cannot manage yourself.  God is well pleased with the earnestness and moderate anxiety with which we attend to our obligations, but he is not pleased with that anxiety which afflicts the soul, because he wishes our limitations and weakness to seek the support of his strength and omnipotence, with the trust that in His goodness He will supply what is lacking to our weakness and shortcomings.
