Great advice for our own time, when zealous Catholics are scarce as hen's teeth:

"But when all this is said let not the apostle allow discouragement to press in upon him if others remain indifferent, cynical, or even positively hostile. Our Lord took what men gave Him. Let the apostle indeed be fired with zeal, but let him learn too the art of practising infinite patience in his dealings with souls."
