If anyone wants to come with me, he told them, he must forget himself, carry his cross and follow me.
Only the children of God can be a bearer of Christ's cross. Only the children of God can recognise who he is. To follow him requires strong and pure heart because to carry the cross without Christ is meaningless, lifeless. Today, he invites us to embrace, love and not to give up the cross of our following as He did.
