second time), although there are many sufferings and obstacles.
Spirit of glory renews us from flesh man to spiritual one as Jesus.
It is started with being strong and of good courage and being happy
in the middle of suffering, because our eyes only see Him and ask
for His mercy.

and fervent in spirit, strong and of good courage. It equals to the
