“Jesus is with you even when you don’t feel His presence. He is never so close to you as He is during your spiritual battles. He is always there, close to you, encouraging you to fight your battle courageously. He is there to ward off the enemy’s blows so that you may not be hurt.” (St. Pio of Pietrelcina)
The Memorial of St. Pius of Pietrelcina, Priest (1887 – 1968) is September 23.
