Christ Would Certainly Have Shown It

"For our merit and our spiritual advancement does not consist in comforts and sweetness, but in bearing great adversities and trying experiences.  

For surely if there had been anything better and more useful than suffering for the health of the human soul, Christ would certainly have shown it by word and example.  

But he openly exhorts the disciples who follow him and all others who desire to follow him to bear the cross." 

- The Imitation of Christ
