Quote of the day: 31 August

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.
Auxiliary Bishop of Managua
Homily, 30 August 2020 (excerpt)
