To embrace the Cross is
To take the greatest possible risk
To endure the greatest possible suffering
To overcome the greatest possible evil
To achieve the greatest possible good
To demonstrate the greatest possible love.
Love begets the desire to know intimately.
Intimate knowing begets trust.
Trust begets confidence.
Confidence begets boldness.
Boldness begets leaps of faith.
Leaps of faith beget victory.
Victory begets joy and peace.
Joy and peace beget gratitude.
Gratitude begets love.
Love begets the desire to know intimately…
