QUOTATION: Two Kinds of Crosses

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
Crosses are of two kinds: pure ones, which come from the outside, such as pain, persecution, and ridicule; and inner, or impure crosses, which come as the result of our sins, such as sadness, despair, and unhappiness. These latter crosses can be avoided. They are made by contradicting the will of God.

--Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, The Fifteen Mysteries
