“Dear friar George,

Learn to know Christ as the crucified one.  Learn to rejoice in him and to despair of yourself and say to him, ‘You, Lord Jesus, are my righteousness, but I am your sin.  You have taken all that is mine upon yourself and you have given me that which is yours.  You have taken what you were not and given that which I was not.”

Quoted by J. Van Genderen, Gerechtigheid als Geschenk, 40.
