St Bernard

"And I glory in tribulations if I have been counted worthy
to endure any for the sake of the Church.
This, truly, is my glory and the lifting up of my head:
the triumph of the Church.
For if we have been sharers of her troubles,
we shall be also of her consolation.
We must work and suffer with our mother."

[St Bernard of Clairvaux]
