Martyrdom

Live as though you were going to have to die as a martyr today.

The more we lack in this world, the more surely we discover the best thing the earth has to offer us:  the cross.

The more firmly we embrace the cross, the more closely we are bound to Jesus, our Beloved, who is made fast to it.

-Charles de Foucauld
