Bearing Your Cross

"God knows best what cross we need to bear.  We do not know how heavy other people's crosses are.  We envy someone who is rich; his is a golden cross set with jewels, but we do not know how heavy it is.  Here is another whose life seems very lovely.  She bears a cross twined with flowers (but we don't see the piercing thorns underneath).  If we could try all the other crosses that we think are lighter than our own, we would at last find that not one of them suited us so well as our own."
