The Lord desired that we should rejoice and leap for joy in persecutions. For when persecutions occur, then the crowns of faith are given. Then the soldiers of God are proved. Then the heavens are opened to martyrs…We should not fear to be slain, for we are sure to be crowned when we are slain.

Let us glory in the cross of the Savior…
