"How different the things of earth appear when one passes into eternity. What are charges and offices in the sight of God? All He counts is the purity of our intentions when exercising them, even in the smallest acts. How little is the earth and all it contains, and yet, how loved...Ah! What comparison is there between life, however prolonged, and eternity. If only it were realized how in purgatory the soul is wearied and consumed with desire to see God."
