Just a thought

"Just as a loving mother of a little child, when he wants to climb the stairs, takes his hand in hers so that he climb after her, so the Lord takes the hand of the humble penitent with the hand of love, that he may climb by the ladder of the cross to the state of perfection, so as to become worthy to see him who is desirable in appearance."

-Saint Anthony of Padua
