It can be easy to want to give up the battle to be pure, holy and faithful when life becomes difficult and the temptations pile up.
Today’s saint vowed to live his life to the fullest, not wasting a single moment. And thanks to the way he courageously lived out his promise, St. Alphonsus Liguori is known today as the patron saint of final perseverance.
For us, having the resolve to persevere to the end of our lives doesn’t mean we will do it perfectly. It simply means that we will keep trying.
