Dot you want your crown? Don't forget the banner!

Behold that Christ, the king of kings (cf. 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 (cf. 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
