Servant of God, Father Isaac Hecker writes:

A saint is all through and all over “heroic.” The saint alone is truly free, his actions are eternal and his life universal. There is no exercise of “heroic virtue” without insurmountable obstacles. Heroism that involves suffering surpasses all other forms of heroism.
