we refuse to take up our cross and submit to suffering and rejection at the
hands of men, we forfeit our fellowship with Christ and have ceased to follow
him. But if we lose our lives in his service and carry our cross, we shall find
our lives again in the fellowship of the cross with Christ…. To bear the cross
proves to be the only way of triumphing over suffering. This is true of all who
follow Christ, because it was true for him.” – Dietrich
