"Without the burden of afflictions it is impossible to reach the height of grace. The gift of grace increases as the struggle increases."—St. Rose of Lima

I visited Peru in 2014, where one of the most popular attractions is Machu Picchu. St. Rose of Lima is a patron saint of Peru, and I thought this quote attributed to her about the height of grace fit really well with a landmark site of her native country, situated over 7,000 feet above sea level. She was also born not long after the skyward Incan city was abandoned, in the late 1500s.
