Short Quotes on the Cross

BY THE WOOD of the Cross, God was made manifest to all; His hands are stretched out to gather all men together.

-Irenaeus (about the year 175).

BY THE WOOD of the Cross, the bitterness of the Law is changed into the sweetness of Spiritual understanding, and the People of God can quench its thirst.

-Origen (about the year 225).

TAKE FIRST, as an unassailable foundation, the Cross, and build on it the rest of your faith. Deny not the Crucified.

-St. Cyril of Jerusalem (about the year 350).

IN THE CROSS is life... If you will gladly bear the Cross, it will bear you, and bring you to the end of your desire. -Imitation of Christ (about the year 1440).

TO TAKE UP one's Cross cannot mean anything else than that we should receive and suffer all of the pains, contradictions, afflictions, and mortifications that happen to us.

-St. Francis de Sales (about the year 1600).

IN THE CROSS and Him who hung upon it, all things meet; all things subserve it; all things need it. It is their center and interpretation. For He was lifted up on it, that He might draw all men and all things to Him.

-Cardinal Newman (about the year 1850).

WHO WOULD HAVE IMAGINED that two pieces of wood placed one upon the other, could assume as many shapes as there are individual destinies! And yet such is the case. Your cross is made to your measure, and you must stretch yourself upon it whether you want to or not, whether with hatred and revolt or with submission and love.

-Francois Mauriac (about the year 1946).

IT HAS BEEN SAID the Crosses are fashioned of two pieces: the one, the will of God the other, my own will. Place these two wills side by side and there is no Cross, but only pleasure. It is only when God's will is laid across my will that there is pain and sorrow.

-Father John B. Delauney.

Seal the cross openly on your forehead and on your children's, so that the demons, seeing the royal sign, will tremble and flee.

-- St. Cyril of Jerusalem
