More wisdom from St. Alphonsus Liguori

St. Alphonsus Liguori

The following advice on what is to be envied, and what is not, is taken from "The Practice of the Love of Jesus Christ:"

"Envy not the great ones of this world their riches, honors, dignities, or applause, given them by men; but envy rather those who most love Jesus Christ, who undoubtedly enjoy greater happiness than the first monarchs of the earth.  Return thanks to the Lord for enlightening you to discover the vanity of all worldly things, for the sake of which so many unhappily perish."

St. Alphonsus Liguori, pray for us.
