Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross
With their patience worn out by the journey.
How often do we feel that way, with our patience worn out by life’s and faiths journey.. Where do we turn in such times? Today’s feast reminds us to turn to the cross. For God so loved the world He gave His only son. There is no greater love. He didn’t come to take away our suffering or challenges, He came to share in them with us, to be fully with us in life’s difficult moments. In our times of struggle and strife, in difficulty and challenge may we turn to the Lord on the cross and allow His unfathomable love and mercy to pour over us. In the cross we find our hope.
