The Exaltation of the Holy Cross
Good morning to my Parish Families and Friends,
One of the most profound acts of faith that we can do every morning is make the sign of the cross. It is the simplest and most powerful way of affirming our belief in God and His love for us.
When I gaze on the cross I feel the power of God's love pouring forth. It is a great paradox whereby in all of Jesus' suffering and death we encounter peace and new life in the resurrection. What makes the cross to inspirational to us is that Jesus chose His cross in this life for our redemption.
As we journey through our day, some of us will carry our own crosses. Whether it is an illness, family turmoil, or economic hardship, look to the cross on Calvary to help us get through the day.
Remember that Jesus chose His cross- we did not. Go to Jesus this day and ask Him to help us bear our crosses with the same love and dignity that he bore His cross.
Have a great day!
