Newman: taking up the cross

Monday, November 21, 2022
    Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.
    —Romans 13:10-11 (NIV)
    To take up the cross of Christ is no great action done once for all; it consists in the continual practice of small duties which are distasteful to us.
    ... John Henry Cardinal Newman (1801-1890), Parochial Sermons, v. 1, New York: D. Appleton, 1843, p. 42 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 13:10-11; Mark 8:34-35; 9:43-47; Luke 9:23; 14:26-27; 1 John 2:28
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me more aware of my neighbor’s needs.
