Thomas a Kempis: love to the limit

April 11, 2009
    Holy Saturday
    Commemoration of George Augustus Selwyn, first Bishop of New Zealand, 1878

    [Jesus:] And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.
    -- Luke 14:27 (NIV)

    Jesus hath many lovers of His heavenly Kingdom, but few bearers of His Cross. He hath many desirous of consolation, but few of tribulation. Many love Jesus so long as no adversities befall them.
    ... Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471), Of the Imitation of Christ, II.xi. [1418] (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You must bear me as I bear my cross.
