As we begin the last three days of our journey with Jesus to the Cross, I wanted to post this beautiful excerpt from The Imitation of Christ, by Thomas a Kempis:
“Take, therefore, your cross and follow Jesus, and you shall go to life everlasting. He has gone before you, bearing His Cross, and died for you upon that Cross so that you should in like manner bear with Him the cross of penance and tribulation, and that you should be ready in like manner for His love to suffer death, if need be, as He has done for you. If you die with Him you will live with Him; if you are His companion with Him in pain, you will be His companion in glory.”
Blessed be God forever!
