2 Corinthians 12:
3 And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows—4 was caught up to paradise. He heard inexpressible things, things that man is not permitted to tell. 5 I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses.
One of the saints, I believe it was St. Bernadette Soubirous, once said that she believed the stories of saints should relate not their strengths and triumphs so much as their faults and struggles. No doubt this was how she wanted to be remembered as well, by her weaknesses; one who indeed saw the glory of heaven in the face of the Blessed Mother! Certainly, God is glorified in the triumphs in our lives and in our intense religious experiences, and these are beautiful things. But how much more is He glorified in our weakness? For in our weaknesses and struggles, which are particularly before our eyes in Lent, the strength of God must carry us. We are changed and molded more nearly into the image of God.
9 But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
