More Wisdom from St. Alphonsus Liguori

                                       "St. Alphonsus Liguori,", St. Peter's Basilica, Rome

The following is taken from St. Alphonsus Liguori's "The Practice of the Love of Jesus Christ:"

"But even with regard to the present life, it is certain that he who suffers with most patience enjoys the greatest peace.  It was a saying of St. Philip Neri, that in this world there is no Purgatory; it is either all Paradise or all Hell: he that patiently supports tribulations enjoys a Paradise; he that does not do so, suffers a Hell.  Yes, for (as St. Teresa writes) he that embraces the crosses sent him by God feels them not."

St. Alphonsus Liguori, pray for us.
