My soul is full of gratitude to God for the many victories it obtains at every instant, and I cannot refrain from uttering endless hymns of blessing to this great and munificent God. Blessed be the Lord for this great goodness. Blessed be his great mercy. Eternal praise be to such a tender and loving compassion!
-St. Pio of Pietrelcina
