"True love grows with difficulties; false love extinguishes. From experience we know that when we endure difficult tests for someone we love, love does not collapse, but it grows. Torrential waters (that is, abundant tribulations) were not able to quench charity (Cant 8, 7). And so, the saints, who endure setbacks for God, strengthen their love with it; it is like an artist, who becomes more attached to the work that costs him the most".

Saint Thomas Aquinas
