In thee, O Lord, have I hoped; in eternity I shall not be put to shame. Even should an angel from heaven tell me for certain that I have been rejected from thy presence, I would not believe him. Even were you yourself, God almighty, to say: I have condemned thee for eternity, I would not listen to thy word. Forgive me, Lord; in this I would not believe thee, for even were thou to kill me and cast me in the depths of hell, I would still hope in thee.
Cardinal Bona, Via Compendii in Deum (Quoted in Prayer, by Hans Urs Von Balthasar)
