‘Virtus in Arduo’
Excellence Through Hardship
The life of our patron saint St. Paul, “with far greater labours, far more imprisonment, with countless floggings and often near death. on frequent journeys, danger at sea, in toil and hardship, through many a sleepless night, hungry and thirsty, often without food, cold and naked” (2 Corinthians 11:23- 27) is the perfect example of excellence achieved through hardships.
Facing all the competition students should attain their goals and prove themselves the transcendent even during hardship and adversities, keeping their morale high with a positive attitude. Under the shadow of divine grace they should always be willing to co-operate with the plans of God for them. Instead of taking credit for their abilities, students should dedicate it to the omnipotent and should take pride in doing so.
The scripture (2 Corinthians 10:17-18) says,” Whoever wants to boast must boast about what the Lord has done. For it is when the Lord thinks well of a person that he is really approved and not when he thinks well of himself.”
