The Frosts of the Winter

Came across this quote today in common prayer.

It seemed apt to the situations of many in our community, and I thought it worth sharing.

Alphonsus Liguori, eighteenth-century founder of the Redemptorists, wrote,

“Persecutions are to the works of God what the frosts of the winter are to plants; far from destroying them, they help them to strike their roots deep in the soil and make them more full of life.”
