Eternal rest grant to all souls, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.
“Pope Francis has repeated again and again that the love of money is the definitive, destructive faith of our time. It wrecks communities in this life—and could lead to even worse in the next life by rejecting God’s love.”
“Persevere in labors that lead to salvation. Always be busy in spiritual actions. In this way, no matter how often the enemy of our souls approaches, no matter how many times he may try to come near us, he’ll find our hearts closed and armed against him.”
— St. Cyprian of Carthage
“Many are heading straight on for purgatory. They live until their last hour, even though they are seriously ill, even on their deathbed, as if everything is all right. Exclusively directed to the earthly, they don’t think at all about calling upon the mercy of God. Although by doing so they would be spared at least a severe purgatory. For God is infinitely merciful for all who call upon Him and trust Him.”
