This quote is...
.... in a book that I'm reading about St Francis and his followers. He claims "our friends are all those who unjustly inflict upon us distress and anguish, shame and injury, sorrow and punishment, martyrdom and death. We must love them greatly for we shall possess eternal life because of what they bring us."

More of his art and influences thread.
Carlo Crivelli, was influenced by Viennese School painters but later developed an individual style. Although he painted religious art exclusively, he was not known to be particularly moral in character. He eventually settled in what is now Croatia.
