"Spectacular heroism even martyrdom, is easy; the daily grind is hard.

Many can respond to emergencies heroically; 

 

few can keep up their charity day to day,

especially when no one notices.

That's why picking up a scrap of paper for the love of God

can be more of a proof of sanctity than martyrdom."
