Some Thoughts to Brighten Your Day

"For many are called but few chosen.”
-Matthew 20:16

“What do you think? How many of the inhabitants of this city may perhaps be saved? What I am about to tell you is very terrible, yet I will not conceal it from you. Out of this thickly populated city with its thousands of inhabitants not one hundred people will be saved. I even doubt whether there will be as many as that!”
-St. John Chrysostom

“Those who are saved are in the minority.”
-St. Thomas Aquinas

“So vast a number of miserable souls perish, and so comparatively few are saved!”
-St. Philip Neri

“Out of one hundred thousand sinners who continue in sin until death, scarcely one will be saved.”
-St. Jerome

“Yes, indeed, many will be damned; few will be saved.”
-St. Benedict Joseph Labre

“A great number of Christians are lost.”
-St. Leonard of Port Maurice

“The common opinion is that the greater part of adults is lost.”
St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori

“The number of the elect is so small — so small — that, were we to know how small it is, we would faint away with grief: one here and there, scattered up and down the world!”
-St. Louis Marie de Montfort

How surprising is any of this, when one considers that there are an estimated half million swingers in Italy, and who knows how many more worldwide, millions who take part in human sex trafficking, prostitution, and the porn industry, millions who lie, cheat, and steal with little remorse, and millions in this country alone who will be voting for Obama care little for the plight of the unborn?
