Reflection:

The cross is exalted—honored and venerated—because it brings life. But the only way we can share in this life is believing in Jesus and taking up our own cross so that death leads to life. Believing in Jesus implies sharing in Jesus’ death as well as his resurrection. For most of us, we readily see the crosses in our lives. Perhaps the challenge of this gospel is to see beyond our crosses to glory and life. This is the challenge of the cross: to see that glory in our everyday lives. Good surrounds all of us; the cross invites us to see that good—out of pain and poverty can come a new life that has value, meaning, and purpose for self and others.

  Vincentian Meditation:

The cross is always seen in light of the resurrection. Without the resurrection, the cross remains in darkness. Also, there is no resurrection without the cross. The cross of Christ, therefore, stands with the resurrection at the center of the good news we believe in. Together, they tell us how deeply God loves us. They evangelize us. And, besides the cross of Jesus, the crosses of his members can evangelize us, too. Our lives can be transformed by the suffering love of Jesus’ followers, who fill up his sufferings in their bodies: the sick, who bear illness with courage; the grieving, who hope against hope; the dying, who clearly trust in the resurrection. The “foolishness” of the cross will be credible on our lips only if we have learned its “wisdom” from sharing in the suffering of our brothers and sisters.

St. Vincent De Paul wrote,” To be involved in the service of Jesus, is a sacred trust to which we have been invited”.
