Daily Strength - The Cross

“If you bear the cross willingly it will bear you and lead you to the desired end; that is, to that place where suffering will end, a thing which cannot happen here on earth. 

If you bear it unwillingly, you will make it a burden to you and make it heavier, while, nevertheless,you have to bear it. 

If you fling away one cross, you will certainly find another, and perhaps a heavier one.” 

(Thomas à Kempis, The Imitation of Christ)
