Caryll Houselander (+1954):

Today, but for Christ, we could logically despair. “What hope of reforms now?” If the kingdom were a material one, then hope would be absurd. But we are told to pray it may come, and come it can and will, in heart after heart, coming as the growth of love, as a light flooding the mind, until, aware of the wonder of it, we shall dare in Christ’s name either to live for it or to die for it, knowing that not one jot of suffering can be wasted or miss the mark, since all of it is his sacrifice.
