CQOD: 08/08/07 -- von Hügel: the only way to joy

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 8, 2007
Feast of Dominic, Priest, Founder of the Order of Preachers, 1221
    Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.
    -- Matthew 16:24,25 (NIV)

    The mystery revealed, in a unique degree and form, in Christ’s life, is really a universal spiritual human law: the law of suffering and sacrifice, as the one way to joy and possession, which has existed, though veiled till now, since the foundation of the world.
    ... Friedrich von Hügel (1852-1925)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, lead me to know the way of sacrifice.
