"we rejoice in our sufferings,
knowing that suffering produces endurance,
and endurance produces character,
and character produces hope...
and hope does not put us to shame,
because God's love
has been poured out into our hearts
through the Holy Spirit
who has been given to us."
"have courage for the great sorrows of life
and patience for the small ones;
and when you have laboriously completed
your daily task,
go to sleep in peace.
God is awake."
