(Lk 14:26-27)
"If any one comes to me without hating his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.

Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.

@George When St Paul said God has called us into fellowship with His Son (1 Cor 1:9) we should all know such fellowship costs us something. As it should.

@George Whoever knows about the family I come from will understand our LORD's word to its deepest ground. When there is no ground to grow, one starts thinking of HIM and his salvation. Thank you very much Benedikt XVI. and Rainer Maria Kardinal Woelki, Erzbischof von Köln!
