Evening Meditations for the Fifteenth Wednesday After Pentecost~ St Alphonsus Liguori
For the word of the Cross, to them that perish, is foolishness; but to them that are saved, that is to us, it is the power of God (1 Cor. i. 18). Thus St. Paul warns us not to follow after worldly men, who place their trust in riches, in their relatives and friends in the world, and account the Saints fools for despising those earthly goods; but to place all our hopes in the love of the Cross — that is, of Jesus crucified, Who gives every blessing to those who trust in Him.
