“Não queremos aceitar o fato de que o sofrimento é necessário para nossa alma e de que a cruz deve ser o nosso pão cotidiano. Assim como o corpo precisa ser nutrido, também a alma precisa da cruz, dia a dia, para purificá-la e desapegá-la das coisas terrenas. Não queremos entender que Deus não quer e não pode salvar-nos nem santificar-nos sem a cruz. Quanto mais Ele chama uma alma a Si, mais a santifica por meio da cruz.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
