St. Leonard's "The Little Number of Those Who Are Saved"

Saint Leonard of Port Maurice was a most holy Franciscan friar who lived at the monastery of Saint Bonaventure in Rome. He was one of the greatest missioners in the history of the Church. He used to preach to thousands in the open square of every city and town where the churches could not hold his listeners. So brilliant and holy was his eloquence that once when he gave a two weeks' mission in Rome, the Pope and College of Cardinals came to hear him.

 

One of Saint Leonard of Port Maurice's most famous sermons was "The Little Number of Those Who Are Saved." ... In it he reviews the various states of life...  and concludes with the little number of those who are saved, in relation to the totality of men.


The reader who meditates on this remarkable text will grasp the soundness of its argumentation, which has earned it the approbation of the Church. Here is the great missionary's vibrant and moving sermon:

Salvation is not to be presumed as heretics do. St. Paul says: "Wherefore, my dearly beloved, with FEAR and TREMBLING work out your salvation" (Phil ii. 12)
