This is the path by which Jesus leads strong souls. Here you will learn the better to recognize your true homeland and to look on this life as a brief pilgrimage.
-St. Pio of Pietrelcina
When it is all over you will not regret having suffered; rather you will regret having suffered so little, and suffered that little so badly.
-Bl. Sebastian Valfre
Act of Hope
O Lord God, I hope by your grace for the pardon of all my sins and after life here to gain eternal happiness because you have promised it, who are infinitely powerful, faithful, kind, and merciful. In this hope I intend to live and die.
