St. Alphonsus (c. 1755): “What greater peace can a soul feel than in being able to say on lying down at night: Should death come this night, I hope to die in the grace of God. What a consolation is it to hear the thunder roll, to feel the earth tremble, and to await death with resignation, if God so ordain it.”
John 20:22-23- “And when He [Jesus] had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.’”
