“If you find that the world hates you, know it has hated me before you.”

Origen (c.185-253), priest and theologian, 
Exhortation to Martyrdom, 41-42

“If you find that the world hates you, know it has hated me before you.”

If, in passing from being non-believers to faith, we “passed from death to life” (Jn 5:24), let us not be surprised that the world hates us. For all who have not passed from death to life but who remain in death, cannot love those who have passed from the dark dwelling place of death… to the “edifice built of living stones” (cf. 1 Pet 2:5), where the light of life reigns…

Behold, for us Christians the time has come to boast, for it is written: “We even boast of our afflictions! We know that affliction makes for endurance, and endurance for tested virtue, and tested virtue for hope. And this hope will not leave us disappointed, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit.” (Rom 5:3-5)…

“As we have shared much in the suffering of Christ, so through Christ do we share abundantly in his consolation.” (2 Cor 1:5) So let us welcome the sufferings of Christ with great fervor. May they be granted us in abundance, if we want to be abundantly consoled, since all “who are sorrowing will be consoled.” (Mt 5:4) … Those who share in the sufferings will also share in the consolation, in proportion with the sufferings which let them have a part with Christ. Learn this from the apostle, who said with confidence: “Our hope for you is firm because we know that just as you share in the sufferings, so you will share in the consolation.” (2 Cor 1:7)
