A thought for the day

Behold that Christ, the "King of kings"(Revelation 19:16), established by decree that no one can see him, unless the person is crucified with him; and this decree is so general that no one is excluded; it is so necessary, that no one is dispensed from it; but each person is held to accept the cross "of mortification in one's body so that the life of Jesus" Christ "may be manifested in one's body" (II Corinthians 4:10) through imitation; in other words, no one is worthy to follow him to the crown without the victory banner.

- Saint Bonaventure
