QUOTATION: We Must All Carry Our Cross

St. Louis de Montfort
No, this accursed earth on which we live is not destined to make us happy; in this land of darkness we cannot expect to see clearly; there is no perfect calm on this stormy sea; we can never avoid conflicts on this field of trial and battle; we cannot escape being scratched on this thorn-covered earth. Willingly or unwillingly, all must carry their cross, both those who serve God and those who do not.

--St. Louis de Montfort, Letter to the Friends of the Cross
