Rejecting honors and pleasures now...

"Consider the many and grievous trials endured by the Apostles, Martyrs, Confessors, Virgins, and indeed all the Saints who followed in the footsteps of our Lord!  In order to possess everlasting life they rejected honors and all the pleasures of this life."

Imitation of Christ, Book One, Chapter Eighteen
