It is always paradoxical

"Being a Christian is hard. The Christian cannot copy Christ because he is unique, but he should nevertheless follow him. This will give him confidence to live the paradox of being a child as well as a mature adult, 'remaining humble, while knowing that he is one who is sent,' and, yes, of being both father and brother." -- Hans Urs von Balthasar
