The cross is the school of love. – St. Maximilian Kolbe
Today is the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross. Our Pastor spoke today of the difference between a Cross and a Burden.
He told the story of a young girl who carried her brother who had no legs on her back. Another person asked her how she could carry that burden. She answered, “he is not a burden, he is my brother.”
The Cross is not a burden because the cross is borne of love. The cross is hope. We all have a choice. Do you look at things as a burden, or a Cross?
Today on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, heed the words of Jesus;
“Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.” Matthew 16:24
