The Church Still Crucified Here Below

At the Museu Antoniano in Lisbon, Portugal“The body of Christ which is the Church” (Col 1:24) still suffers crucifixion and death… Soldiers and devils still crucify the body of Christ, that is, afflict its members with temptations. Unbelievers still offers it the gall and vinegar of prejudice and persecution to drink.
Saint Anthony of Padua
