QUOTATION: Conditional Crosses

St. Francis de Sales
We meet often enough with souls who desire to suffer and to carry the cross, and I know there are some who even ask afflictions from God, but it is on condition that He will frequently visit and console them in their pains and sufferings, and that He will show them He is much pleased with their sufferings, and intends to reward them with eternal glory.

--St. Francis de Sales, Consoling Thoughts
