QUOTATION: The Blessed

St. Alphonsus Liguori
They are not called blessed who are esteemed by the world, who are honored and praised, as noble, as learned, as powerful; but they who are spoken ill of by the world, who are persecuted and calumniated; for it is for such that a glorious reward is prepared in heaven, if they only bear all with patience.

--St. Alphonsus Liguori, The Holy Eucharist
