follow me

“If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. What profit is there for one to gain the whole world yet lose or forfeit himself?” (LK 9: 23-25)

“If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Logically, “deny himself and take up his cross daily” are connected with “follow me.” But “follow me” is not a result of “deny himself and take up his cross,” it is rather a condition of follow me. “Follow me” is about love, about taking care of others and serving them.

“Repent, says the Lord; the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Gospel Acclamation)
