I'm Spiritual... and Religious

Do you know what religion is? It is a school in which every soul must be trained, smoothed and polished by the Holy Spirit, who acts as a physician to our souls until, well smoothed and polished, they can be united and joined to the will of God. . .Religion is an infirmary for the spiritually sick, who wish to be cured and must therefore undergo the pains of surgery.  - St. Pio of Pietrelcina

A few months ago when the "Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus" video came out, inciting all kinds of counter videos, I thought of this quote by St. Padre Pio.
