Beautiful Quote

This is a beautiful quote by Lawrence Lovasik from his book, the Hidden Power of Kindness, published by Sophia Press:

“If you want to win souls for Christ, you must willingly endure the anguish for sins that sinners do not experience, in order to win at least ultimately the grace of repentance for them. You may have to go through the agonies of delayed hopes for many hearts, and even seeming failure at the end, for someone whose soul has been your deep concern. But your sincere devotion to bring a soul to Christ will not be in vain. God knows the secret workings of His grace in souls.”

This quote sums up one of the themes of my first book, Emily’s Hope. As well, it can be an appropriate quote for mothers (like St. Monica, who prayed for many years that her son, St. Augustine, would repent and convert.)
