Wednesday: September 14, 2016 –– Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross
Look at the Cross
To know God…. look at the cross.
To see the effect of disobedience, of selfishness, of sin…. look at the cross.
To see how God responds to hate…. look at the cross.
To chase the nagging accusations of guilt…. look at the cross.
To have true hope for salvation…. look at the cross.
To stay close to Jesus…. look at the cross.
To know how to respond to others…. look at the cross.
To know how to LIVE…. look at the cross.
“No other god, no other power, no other being in all the world loves like this, gives like this, dies like this. All others win victories by fighting; this one, by suffering. All other gods exercise power by killing; this one by dying.” (N.T. Wright)
Let us, every day, say with St Paul: May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world (Galatians 6:14).
