The Exaltation of the Holy Cross, Feast –Monday, 14 September 2020
Numbers 21:4b-9. Psalm 78:1-2, 34-35, 36-37, 38. Philippians 2:6-11. John 3:13-17.
The Cross. Not long ago, on 30 August to be exact, we were told by Jesus to take up the cross and follow. Take up my cross. Christians do fear the cross. Its emptiness manifests the risen presence of the Christ in our midst. This is why we embrace it on Good Friday.
- What will I pick up, what will I embrace, what will I bear to follow Jesus?
