Cross or Burden

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
