Kitchen Catechism: Prayers
A pure soul is like a fine pearl…
by St. John Vianney
A pure soul is like a fine pearl. As long as it is hidden in the shell at the bottom of the sea, no one thinks of admiring it. But if you bring it into the sunshine, this pearl will shine and attract all eyes. Thus, the pure soul which is hidden from the eyes of the world, will one day shine before the angels in the sunshine of eternity.
-St. John Vianney
