St Louis IX of France

"If God send thee adversity, receive it in patience and give thanks to our Saviour and bethink thee that thou hast deserved it, and that He will make it turn to thine advantage. If He send thee prosperity, then thank Him humbly, so that thou becomest not worse from pride or any other cause, when thou oughtest to be better. For we should not fight against God with his own gifts." – St Louis's advice to his son. This painting of the sainted King of France is in the Cathedral of San Cristobal de La Laguna, Tenerife.
