Today's Reflection

Let us be especially grateful to God for the gift of faith, a gift which is mainly instilled in us at Baptism. . . We must remember that faith is the greatest gift that God has made to man on this earth, because from earthly man he becomes a citizen of Heaven. But let us guard this great gift jealously. Woe to him who forgets himself, who forgets Heaven, whose faith grows weak, and worse still, may God preserve us all, who denies his faith. This is the greatest affront that man can make to God. Attention, then. Let us pray to God to preserve this gift in us as the most precious thing he has granted us.

– St. Pio of Pietrelcina
