Chrysologus for Lent XXXV

Many blossoms hold out promise of abundant fruit, but, put to the test by gusts of wind, very few persevere and bear fruit. And so in a time of peace the Church seems to have many who believe in Christ, but when the storm of persecution blows, there are few who are found to bear fruit in martyrdom.

Sermon 97, section 3.
