From St Anthony of Padua
The Name of Jesus
Oil has five properties;
It floats on the surface of any liquid,
It softens hard things,
It sweetens bitter things,
It is a source of light and provides nourishment for the body.
The name Jesus has similar properties:
it excels every other name,
it softens the hardest of hearts,
it sweetens the most bitter experiences,
it enlightens our hearts
and nourishes our souls.
