"Man is successful in this world if he saves his soul and is very knowledgeable if he knows the science of salvation; but he is a total failure if he loses his soul and knows nothing if he is ignorant of those things that can assure him of eternal salvation." St. John Bosco
James 5:20 is one of the simplest ways to get to heaven. Bring a soul to Jesus and you ensure your own salvation.
“Whoever brings back a sinner will save his soul from death
and will cover a multitude of sins.”
If this is not a great work what is! Great in the sense that the work lasts forever. Great in the sense that it is an infinitly good thing to help someone save their soul. Great in the honor, Great in the Glory, Great in every sense of the word Great. Any work for God is great but there are degrees of holiness to which the work entails. This work is the Greatest. The work of bringing souls to Jesus.
“There is nothing more holy in this world than to work for the good of souls, for whose salvation Jesus Christ poured out the last drops of His Blood.” St John Bosco
As members of the Four Men prayer groups and one of God's Marines you will be doing a Great Work. Thus, I repeat to you again,
Keep up the Great Work!
"Zeal for the salvation of souls is of so great a merit before God, that to give up all our goods to the poor, or to spend our whole life in the exercises of all sorts of austerities cannot equal the merit of it. There is no service more agreeable to God than this one. To employ one's life in this blessed labor is more pleasing to the Divine Majesty than to suffer martyrdom. Would you not feel happy if you could spend large sums of money in corporal works of mercy? But know that he who labors for the salvation of souls does far more; nay, the zeal of souls is of far greater merit before God . . . than the working of miracles." St. John Chrysostom
