Saintly Quote of the Day (2009年11月4日)

Let us read the lives of the saints; let us consider the penances which they performed, and blush to be so effeminate and so fearful of mortifying our flesh.---ST. ALPHONSUS.

You do well to pray to St. Michael and to urge others to do so. One is indeed happy at the hour of death when he has had confidence in some of the saints. They will be his protectors before God in that terrible moment.---AN UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT ON PURGATORY.

Yes, I suffer very much, but my greatest torment is not seeing God. It is a continuous martyrdom. It makes me suffer more than does the fire of Purgatory.---AN UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT ON PURGATORY.

If you say your prayers well, the souls confided to your care will be benefited by them. God never refuses graces which are asked of Him during prayers well said.---AN UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT ON PURGATORY.
