His Last Illness

Brothers and my dearest sons, do not let my illness become a burden to you. God, in his love for me his servant, will repay you in this life and in the next, giving you the fruit of those works you cannot now attend to, because you are preoccupied with caring for me. You would not receive any greater recompense than had you done those works yourselves; for in helping me, you helped the whole Order and the very life of the brothers. You can even say to me, “We are spending a lot on your account, and the Lord will be in our debt because of you.”

-- Mirror of Perfection, 89
