St. Maud was the wife of Henry, King of Germany. While her husband was engaged in extending his kingdom, she spent her time in visiting and comforting the sick, in serving and instructing the poor, and bringing succor to prisoners.
Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above the rarest merchandise. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. — Matins, First Lesson
The Imitation of Christ
He that hath true and perfect charity seeketh himself in nothing, but only desireth God to be glorified in all things.
Maud was the daughter of Theodoric. Being very wealthy she had great means of assisting the poor. Nothing pleased her more than to carry food and medicines to the poor, sick, and ailing.
Perhaps there is somebody ill in your neighborhood who would love to have you read a story to him or talk pleasantly a while to cheer him up. Perhaps you could go to the hospital and inquire if you may visit someone there who has not friends to come and make the long hours pleasant. Your turn may be coming soon, you know.
Do as you would be done by.
