2nd March


“Whoever wishes to come after Me must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me”. This is the law so clearly given to us, a secret law, unknown to the world, more profound than any philosophy. The profession of this law of self-denial and mortification implies in practice a continual struggle with ourselves, since it is something superior to all our natural tendencies. Our limited nature holds within itself an egotistical element; and so we have to ask God continually for the grace to become victors in this terrible battle which lasts as long as life itself.

Ronciglione, 15.10.49
