Hammarskjold: the way ends on the Cross

Sunday, March 28, 2021
    Palm Sunday
    Then [Jesus] said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.”
    —Luke 9:23-24 (NIV)
    He who has surrendered himself to it knows that the Way ends on the Cross—even when it is leading him through the jubilation of Gennesaret or the triumphal entry into Jerusalem.
    ... Dag Hammarskjöld (1905-1961), Markings, tr. Leif Sjöberg & W. H. Auden, (q.v.), New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1964 (post.), p. 91 (see the book)
    See also Luke 9:23-24; Mark 6:53-56; Luke 14:26-27; John 12:12-13; Rom. 8:13-14; Gal. 2:20; 5:24
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You keep my feet on the Way.
