The Lantern of Light. Chapter Twelve: of the Fiend’s Contrivances, by Which, in His Members, He Pursues the Keepers of God’s Commands.

St. Hilary saith, “This property hath Christ’s church; when it is pursued, it flourisheth; when it is bruised down, it groweth; when it is despised, it profiteth; when it is hurt, it overcometh; when it is blamed, it understandeth; and it standeth most strongly when it seems to man’s eye to be overcome.” This church is a true soul, as we have said before.
