Living a good life isn't supposed to be easy

Steve of the "Gay, Catholic and Doing Fine" blog makes a great point. An excerpt:

But I have less and less patience with this question: “How can the Church require homosexuals to be celibate? How can she impose such a heavy cross?” 
Why do people think that living a good life is supposed to be easy? Readers, whoever you are — gay, straight, married, single, relatively healthy or inflicted with any one of a billion possible debilitating pathologies — you will be asked to carry a cross. It’s going to be hard, and it’s not going to be fair.
