"Son, if you want to serve the Lord, prepare your soul to the test" (Wis 2:1)

" And 'necessary that the one who was called to leave everything and follow Christ (cf. Mt 19:21), you experience difficulties. St. Alphonsus also explains the cause of these difficulties and temptations, "Yes, because a devoted, if he endureth and is faithful to God, he will take away thousands of sinners , that will be saved through him. And so the enemy will try to earn it in every way, and will field all the tricks to deceive . "
