If anyone comes after me, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” Matt. 16:24
The cross is a symbolic term for human suffering. Experience had taught Alphonsus that all people suffer in some way; the question is not whether we will suffer, but how. We can respond to the how of suffering by developing a love of the cross—having the spirit of Christ, bearing the cross with gentleness, with cheerfulness, with love.
As you face the challenge of examining your personal sufferings in light of the sufferings of Christ, pray for the courage to accept these sufferings. It is a great challenge indeed!
