to follow


To follow Christ according to Cardinal Suhard, "does not consist in engaging in propaganda, nor even stirring people up, but in being a living mystery. It means to live in such a way that one's life would not make sense if God did not exist."

Excellent quotation -- a great combination of "mystery" and "mak[ing] sense." Mystery that is embodied creates sense and it does not depend on prior notions of meaning, reason, or sensibility.
