Saintly sarcasm

For though I grant that God loves a cheerful giver, still I have no doubt that He loved Tobias and holy Job too.  Now it is true that both of them bore their calamities bravely and patiently, but neither of them, so far as I know, was exactly jumping with joy or clapping their hands out of happiness. 
- Saint Thomas More, The Sadness of Christ
