Attainment of the Kingdom of God

  In order not to be in perpetual bondage to your vices and to the Devil, you must set yourself an object. Have it consistently before you, and endeavor to reach it, conquering all obstacles in the name of the Lord. What is this object? The kingdom of God, the divine place of glory, prepared for believers from the creation of the world. But as this object can only be attained by certain means, it is also necessary to have such means at one's disposal. And what are these means? Faith, hope and love - especially the last.
