2 Timothy 1:8
Be not you therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner…
Let me ask you a question. "What would you take for the greatest proof of downright friendship a man could show you?" "That is too hard a question to answer all at once." "Well, I may be wrong, but the deepest outcome of friendship seems to me, on the part of the superior at least, the permission, or better still, the call, to share in his sufferings."
