What souls we can convert by our prayers. The one who saves a soul from hell saves this soul and his own as well.

I can't stop praying for poor sinners who are on the road to hell. If they come to die in that state, they will be lost for all eternity. What a pity! We have to pray for sinners! Praying for sinners is the most beautiful and useful of prayers because the just are on the way to heaven, the souls of purgatory are sure to enter there, but the poor sinners will be lost forever. All devotions are good but there is no better one than such prayer for sinners.

It's a very moving quote isn't it George?

It reminds me of one of St. Anthony Mary Claret's.

Indeed it is, I believe it's what I've been called to do.

I'm hoping to read about St. Anthony Mary Claret

Deo gratias! It is a splendid calling, a gift. Cheesy

O Priest! Take care lest what was said to Christ on the cross be said to you: "He saved others, himself he cannot save!"

Oh my God! Would I might prevent all from offending Thee! Rather would I could make Thee known, loved and served by all creatures! This is the sole object of my desire, for all things else are unworthy of attention.

Yes, we have to be careful that we live what we speak of. We have to constantly work with hope to live the life of the saints, the life of Christ.

'This seems a cheerful world, Donatus, when I view it from this fair garden. But if I climbed some great mountain and looked out over the wide land, you know well what I would see. Brigands on the high roads, pirates on the seas, men murdered in the amphitheaters to please the applauding crowds, and under all roofs misery and selfishness. It is really a bad world. And yet in the midst of it, I have found a quiet and holy people. They have discovered a joy which is a thousand times better than any pleasure of this sinful life. They are despised and persecuted, but they care not. They have overcome the world. These people, Donatus, are the Christians, and I have become one of them.'

Well, there are many in name, but in their ignorance, scarcely more than. So many.. and so few who are true..

God help us to become true Christians! God help people everywhere..

I think that's a quote that needs to be more in context. One should have to look it up.

"Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a pharisee and the other a tax collector. the Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all that I get. But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, 'God be merciful to me a sinner!'

Believing that only God can read a heart, who can judge.
Lord Jesus Christ Son of God have mercy on me a sinner

Saint Cyprian pray for us
