Indeed the life of a good religious man is a cross, but it is a cross that conducts him to Paradise.—St Thérèse of Lisieux
Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!—Matthew 7:13-14
