Flowering of the Soul

A planter outside St. Michael's Cathedral in bloom.  Face of St. Edwin of Northumbria visible in background.

The life of a Christian is nothing but a perpetual struggle against self.  There is no flowering of the soul to the beauty of its perfection except at the price of pain.           
                          – St. Padre Pio
