St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

Matthew 16:24-28

We believe that it is by following Christ that we can find life in its fullness, even though it may mean being willing to give up some of the things that the world values. Happiness cannot be found by itself, but only by seeking the happiness of other people first. It is a gift that follows giving. Jesus gave up everything for our sake. What are we willing to give in response?
