Quote of the Day (St. Alfonso María de Liguori, on How ‘God is Ever Beside You’)

“Your God is ever beside you—indeed, He is even within you. ‘In Him we live, and move, and are.’ (Acts 17:28). Not only is there no need of an intermediary through whom He would want you to speak to Him, but He finds His delight in having you treat with Him personally and in all confidence. Speak to Him often of your business, your plans, your troubles, your fears—of everything that concerns you. But above all, converse with Him confidently and frankly; for God is not wont to speak to a soul that does not speak to Him.” —Redemptorist founder and Doctor of the Church St. Alfonso Maria de Liguori (1696-1787), How to Converse With God, translated by L. X. Aubin
