Do not forget that being with Jesus means we shall most certainly meet with his Cross. When we abandon ourselves into God’s hands, he frequently permits us to taste sorrow, loneliness, opposition, slander, defamation, ridicule, coming from both within and outside. This is because he wants to mold us into his image and likeness. He even tolerates that we be called lunatics and be taken for fools.
--St. Josemaria Escriva
