The Cross

Today's Gospel reading: John 8:21-30
The cross was an historic event which is made present to us every time we celebrate the Eucharist.  St Bonaventure said of St Francis of Assisi:”The memory of Christ Jesus crucified was ever present in the depths of his heart like a bundle of myrrh.”  This Lent we pray for this same grace – that the memory of the cross, of Jesus lifted up, may so burn in our minds and hearts that it brands therein the sure knowledge of God’s love, not only for us but for the whole of humankind.  If we seek the cross of Christ this Lent, we will find the glory of Christ, because nothing so reveals his beauty, his truth and his goodness than his cross
