“Your cross” means your own anxieties and your sufferings in your own body, which itself is shaped in a way already like a cross.
How is a disciple to know which is his or her cross? We receive it upon entering the discipleship of the suffering Lord, and come to recognize it in the community of Jesus.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer (Germany/1906-1945)
