disease inflames the whole body. Thus it is fitting for us ourselves, that every suffering and every ailment that is on his neighbours should inflame every part, for we all are members unto God, as saith the apostle : Quis scandalizatur et ego non uror? quis infirmatur et ego non infirmor ? 35

There is not...^ the holy apostle has said this from the abundance f. 38a of his charity; everyone's sickness was sickness to him, offence to anyone was offence to him, everyone's infirmity was infirmity to him. Even so it is meet for everyone of us that he suffer with everyone in his hardship and in his poverty and in his infirmity. We see in these wise 40 words of the sage that fellow-suffering is counted as a kind of cross. Now there are three kinds of martyrdom which are counted as a cross to man, that is to say", white martyrdom, and green martyrdom, and red martyrdom. [1] [2]
