“If, however, you feel the call within you, you will not allow yourselves to be deterred by obstacles from following this impulse, because the greater the sacrifice, the greater the reward. We will be able to say to Our Lord with Peter, ‘Behold we have left everything and have followed you; what therefore will we have?’ Undoubtedly he will give us the same answer that he gave to Peter, recorded in the Gospel of St. Matthew, chapter 19, verse 28 [‘I tell you this: in the world that is to be, when the Son of Man is seated on his throne in heavenly splendor, you my followers, will have thrones of your own, where you will sit as judges of the twelve tribes of Israel’].”
