'Listen to the words of those who have been granted perfect love: "What can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or the sword? 'As it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded as sheep for slaughtering' (Ps. 44:22). But in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Rom. 8:35-39). Those who speak and act thus with regard to divine love are all saints.'
