Description

“The Last Things are ever new truths, powerful incentives, considerations that sanctify.  The thought of them casts a brilliant light on life and points out its true meaning.  They are sparks which set on fire a tremendous love–a love that consists in striving to reach God, our final goal and Supreme Good.”  Blessed James Alberone
