Embrace the Cross

"True wealth, true glory, true joy is to be found in the cross.
Happiness is necessarily linked with the cross since Jesus Christ declared this truth.
But we look upon such truths as impenetrable mysteries.
This is a temptation of the devil,
to prevent us from pondering over them,
because upon examining the cross of Christ,
we would find it lovable and worthy of our embrace."
(Spirit 1, § 381)

William Joseph Chaminade
