In Times of War, 10 Phrases of Saints on Trust and Confidence in God

As St. Pio of Pietrelcina once said,”a soul that trusts in God need to fear nothing.”

Newsroom (24/02/2022 15:05, Gaudium Press) Many of the evils we live with today (anxiety, depression, nervous illnesses, etc.) would indeed become less significant if we practiced the virtue of trust in Divine Providence more assiduously.

Our editorial staff has selected some phrases of saints, from different times, about this most critical virtue. We hope they will serve as inspiration and solace in a world plunged in hopelessness, terror and fear.
