"Console and ease the pain of others through the tiniest of attentions. Be as tender and attentive towards those whom God puts on our path, as a brother towards brother or as a mother for her child. As much as possible be an element of consolation for those around us, as soothing balm, as our Lord was towards all those who drew near to him."

Charles de Foucald (15 September 1858–1 December 1916), also known as as Brother Charles of Jesus, was a French Catholic religious and priest whose life and writings inspired the founding of Foucauld communities and many other religious congregations such as the Little Sisters of Jesus, founded by Little Sister Magdeleine of Jesus.
