Lift High the Cross--Proclaim the Love of Christ PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 11 September 2014 15:43

For some a cross is just a piece of jewelry or, in common parlance, “bling-bling.” But for us Catholics it is a manifestation of the love of God, the means of redemption and salvation. We look upon the Cross of Christ differently.

The Cross did not immediately become a symbol of Christianity, for it was an instrument of torture and death for slaves, traitors and criminals. It was a way to completely debase and humiliate the crucified one. Yet Constantine’s vision of a cross with the words “in this sign you shall conquer” inscribed on it, holds fast for us today. In the Cross is victory, light and sacrificial love.

When we look upon the Cross with Christ’s emaciated body on it, we “see” so much more: the sign of trust in the care and protection of a living Savior; the All-innocent One substituting Himself for the criminals; and the Victim offering Himself in atonement to God the Father for our sins. The Cross is no longer an object of shame but of glory and salvation. The Cross, when seen through the eyes of Faith, is a sign of the infinite love of God for each of us. The words of Jesus adorn His Cross: “Greater love than this no one has than He who lays down his life.” The Cross now becomes a way of life for His followers and not just a decoration hanging around our necks. It becomes “a cathedra” from which Jesus teaches us about life, death and eternal values.
