Oh blessed consider all what befalls you as exercises to strengthen you until you receive eternal crowns and you become inhabitants of heaven glorifying God forever. Your Lord Jesus Christ who has anointed you with His Holy Spirit and who led you to this kind of training sees that it is very beneficial for you. You have to be harshly trained in order to grow spiritually for virtue is edified by strife and is destroyed by indulging in lust – Tertullian
