O God, help me to remember that time is short, eternity is long. What good is all the greatness of this world at the hour of death? To love You, my God, and save my soul is the one thing necessary. Without You, there is no peace, no joy. My God, I need fear nothing but sin. For to lose You, my God, is to lose all. O God, help me to remember that to gain all I must leave all, that in loving You I have all good things: the infinite riches of Christ and his Church, the motherly protection of Mary, peace beyond understanding, joy unspeakable! Amen.
~ St. Alphonsus Liguori
