When you wish only to be held and comforted, but you sleep alone again, remember that God was abandoned by his friends and hung to die. When you take up a cross that you do not think you can bear, another has borne a cross greater than yours. When your heart is pierced, one prays for you whose heart was pierced far more deeply.

Where do you get the idea that the afflictions on the path do not belong to the path? Do you not wish to follow in the footsteps of the saints? Do you want to travel by some special path of your own, one that does not involve suffering?

The path to God is a daily cross. No one has ascended to heaven by way of ease. We know where the easy way leads! —Saint Isaac of Syria

When you most feel that you are alone, know that you are not.
