A Secret of Grace and Merit

Be assured that we shall obtain more grace and merit in one day by suffering patiently the afflictions that come to us from God or from our neighbor than we would acquire in ten years by mortifications and other exercises that are of our own choice.
~St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622)
