Thought for the Day

27 December 2013

"Christ was able to see the end of the mission: able to discern the shape of the Cross looming on the horizon. Fortunately for us, the distant scene is hidden; we know not what sacrifices, small or great, will be required of us. But we do know that the same kind of life is required: the same vision, the same outlook, the same sense of vocation and dedication, the same recognition that our lives are just not ours to do what we like with; the same conscious direction of our wills along paths that are certain sometimes to be irksome. We have to pass the same three milestones that Christ knew; Perception, Persistence, Perfection."

- Cyril Cooper
