SEPTEMBER 14: This weekend we celebrate the Exaltation of the Cross. This dates back to the 4th century where the True Cross of Jesus was found at the site of where the crucifixion of Jesus took place. A church was dedicated on the site- The Church Of the Holy Sepulcher. The Cross was seen as an image of destruction, pain and suffering. Jesus saw the cross as part of God’s plan, which was a call to salvation.
How do we look at the cross today. Hope we see it as a sign of hope. When we are affected by an experience that touches our lives, our emotion becomes strong and appear. However, we turn to the cross to look for strength and calm. Let us turn to the cross for hope and not see it as a burden or weakness. Christ challenged his apostles; the cross challenges us today.
Church Office Hours are Tuesday - Friday, 9:00 am to noon. Fr. Mark will be available in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
