Daily Catholic Wisdom
Let us always keep it before our eyes that here on earth is a place of combat and the crown is received in heaven; that here is the proving ground and the prize is given up there; that here we are in a land of exile and our true homeland is heaven, to which we must continually aspire.
—St. Pio of Pietrelcina
Quoted in the book Padre Pio: Stories and Memories of My Mentor and Friend
