The identity of the Christian as witness is marked by the unavoidable and distinctive presence of the Cross. There can be no authentic witness without it. Indeed, the Cross is the necessary condition for all who have firmly decided to follow the Lord: “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me” (Lk 9:23). All the witnesses of God and Christ, beginning with the Apostles, have known persecution because of him: “If they persecuted me, they will persecute you” (Jn 15:20). (Blsd. Pope John Paul II, World Mission Day Message 1996)
