An act of renunciation is an act of union with God. The Divine Master looks lovingly upon a person who gains a victory over self.
As iron is fashioned by fire and on the anvil, so in the fire of suffering and under the weight of trials, our souls receive that form which our Lord desires them to have.
We must suffer in order to go to God. We forget this truth far too often.
Your example, even more than your words, will be an eloquent lesson to the world.
