They were strangers to the world...

"They were strangers to the world, but to God they were dear and intimate friends.  In the world's eyes and in their own they were despised as nothing; but in the eyes of God and His Saints they were beloved and precious indeed.  True humility, simple obedience, charity, patience--in fact all the virtues shone forth in them."

Imitation of Christ, Book One, Chapter Eighteen
