Peace in this Valley of Tears

St Francis at Santa Cruz Church in Thonburi, Thailand

Yes, my God, I live in peace in this valley of tears, for such is Your holy will… “The good that I hope for,” says Saint Francis of Assisi, “is so great that every suffering becomes for me a joy.” Indeed, the highest degree of love that a soul can attain is an ardent desire for Heaven, to be there united to God and to possess Him forever.
Saint Alphonsus Liguori
