            The Lord measures out perfection neither by the multitude nor the magnitude of our deeds, but by the manner in which we perform them.

                           Yet it was our infirmities that he bore,         
                                our sufferings that he endured,   
                             While we thought of him as stricken,   
                                as one smitten by God and afflicted.     
 
                               Isaiah Chapter 53 Verse 4

'Let us read the lives of the saints; let us consider the penances which they performed, and blush to be so effeminate and so fearful of mortifying our flesh.'
