Sirach 2:1-6

My son, when you come to serve the Lord,
prepare yourself for trials
Be sincere of heart and steadfast,
undisturbed in time of adversity.
Cling to him, forsake him not;
thus will your future be great.
Accept whatever befalls you,
in crushing misfortune be patient;
For in fire gold is tested,
and worthy men in the crucible of humiliation.
Trust God and He will help you;
make straight your ways and hope in Him.
