Disciples Have Some Walking to Do - With Christ

When we walk without the Cross, when we build without the Cross and when we profess Christ without the Cross, we are not disciples of the Lord; we are worldly - we are Bishops, Priests, Cardinals, Popes, but not disciples of the Lord.

I wish that all [of us], after these days of grace, have the courage to walk in the Lord's presence, with the Cross of the Lord, to build the Church on the Blood of the Lord, which is shed on the Cross, and to confess the only glory: Christ Crucified. And so the Church will go on.

- Pope Francis
Homily, Sistine Chapel, March 14, 2013
