Look to faith, which assures you that no one can harm you without the will of God. If then, you are harmed, it has happened because of the kind, gracious will of God, so that your enemy harms himself a thousand times more than he harms you. This consideration makes love spring up within me — love which says: Then I will do good to him for the evil he has done me; I will gather coals of fire upon his head. These are the weapons by which enemies are defeated who seem mighty as mountains which cannot be overthrown or won by iron or steel. Love teaches patient suffering.
