True Obedience

Agnus Dei

True obedience is a genuine act of love.
Obedience makes us practice the other virtues.
It likens us to martyrs,
for it is a much greater martyrdom
to persevere in obedience
all through life
than to die in a moment
by a stroke of the sword.

- Sue Cifelli of Half the Kingdom
