Prayer: The Key to Salvation!

August 21st, 2011 by admin

St. Alphonsus Liguori, Doctor of the Church, insisted on prayer as the key to salvation. This great saint asserted: “He who prays much will be saved, but he who does not pray will be damned.” Even the worse sinner in the world, if he turned to prayer, then he could be saved. Remember the “Good Thief” who at the very end of his life, he turned to Jesus and talked to Him (that was his prayer) and he was saved. Jesus assured him with these consoling words: “Amen I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” St. Augustine coined this pithy saying, that we should all memorize, “He who prays well, lives well, he who lives well dies well, and he who dies well, all is well.” The tone of our life and the end our life will depend on how well or how poorly we have prayed. All the saints agree that prayer is indispensable for conversion, purification, sanctification, perseverance, and eternal salvation.
