Without the Cross there is no road to Heaven - St. Rose of Lima (August 23d)

The Lord, our Saviour, raised His voice and spoke with incomparable majesty, 'Let all know, He said, 'that after sorrow grace follows; let them understand that without the burden of affliction one cannot arrive at the height of glory; that the
measure of heavenly gifts is increased in proportion to the labours undertaken.

Let them be on their guard against error or deception; this is the only ladder by which paradise is reached; without the Cross there is no road to Heaven.

- St. Rose of Lima
