St. Cyprian of Carthage on Preferring Nothing to Christ – Marcus and JonMarc Grodi

September 10, 2020 No Comments

Marcus and JonMarc Grodi continue their series looking at St. Cyprian of Carthage’s treatise on the Lord’s Prayer, specifically focusing on St. Cyprian’s thoughts regarding the will of God.

St. Cyprian tells us to “prefer nothing whatever to Christ, because He did not prefer anything to us.” Jesus held nothing back in His incarnation, passion, death, and resurrection; our call as Christians is to give everything of ourselves back to Him in return.
