in statu viatoris

‎Make every effort to satisfy the Commander under whom you serve, and from whom you will draw your pay; and be sure that no deserter is found in your ranks. For a shield take your baptism, for a helmet your faith, for a spear your love, and for body-armour your patient endurance… And be patient and gentle with one another, as God is with you.
—  Saint Ignatius of Antioch
