Path of Salvation

"According to human reasoning, the path of salvation, it would seem, should be a smooth path, quiet and peaceful; but according to the words of the Gospel, this path is sorrowful, difficult, and narrow. The Lord said, 'I came not to send peace on earth, but a sword' (Matt. 10:34)."

-St. Ambrose of Optina
