The spirit of Christ is a spirit
of martyrdom—at least of
mortification and penance. It is
always the spirit of the cross.

suffering life of Christ, the
greater share we inherit in His
spirit, and in the fruit of His
death. To souls mortified to

which entitles a Catholic to a
happy resurrection and to the
bliss of the life to come.
