To be a disciple of Jesus means to take up the cross and follow him. The cross isn’t synonymous with suffering, it means extreme love, a limitless love like Jesus has, that doesn’t break in the face of misunderstanding or rejection. The price of all authentic and faithful love is the cross.Silvio José Báez, O.C.D.
