By St. John of the Cross

“Our Lord has many ready to share His Table, but few to partake of His sorrows, and it is for us to be among those few, if we would be in the number of His friends. Let us help Him to drink His chalice, for that will show that we love Him sincerely. It is no easy matter to be the friend of Jesus Christ. Suffering borne for him is the only sure way to test which is the true and which is the false friend. Although the draught may be bitter, you drink it – think of Whom you take it; how soon its taste will pass away; what a reward it will bring you, and it will taste so sweet that you will complain that there is so little given you. . .  None of those who are already there have passed through the world without greater afflictions than you have; if some of them had less to bear, their tortures were incomparably more severe in Purgatory, for Our Lord has ordained that none shall take part in His joys but they who have shared His pains.”   St. John of the Cross, Audi Fili.
