St. Bernadette wrote that anyone not willing to suffer all for Christ and do his will in all things isn’t worthy of being called Friend. What does that mean? My latest at Walking by Heaven’s Light.
It's fitting to take a day out to spiritually exalt the Cross upon which our Savior suffered and died for us. He bore so much pain and agony on account of our sins and with a love that is limitless despite our faults and sinfulness! The feast is the occasion for a new beginning, as well, as we resolve to take up our own crosses, given to us by Divine Providence, and carry them forward out of love for Jesus.
