Bonhoefer Quote

On perseverance in suffering…302

“For remaining steadfast, remaining strong is meant here too; not weak acquiescence or surrender, not masochism, but growing stronger under the load, as under God’s grace, imperturbably preserving the peace of God.  God’s peace is found with those who persevere.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Secret of Suffering, March 1938
