“It was not hard to leave everything for love, and rank, and wealth, and emperor’s honor, and friends and the whole world by the love of Christ the Lord. For this love, the Lord rewards him with a crown of glory in heaven and on earth and in the eternal life in his kingdom. He has given the Lord the strength and power to help him in misery and trouble to all who worship him and his name. “
