“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Corinthians 1:18

TODAY’S WORD…

.

The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction!

But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God.

– 1 Corinthians 1:18

REFLECTION…

.

The cross of Christ leads the way to true wisdom and prudence.

No one may remain indifferent to it.

.

Some people see the message of the Cross as irrational:

these are on the road to perdition.

.

Others – those who are on the road to salvation –

are discovering that the Cross is the very power of God,

because it has conquered the devil and sin.

.

QUOTE…

.

"O most precious gift of the Cross!

How splendid it looks! […]

It is a tree which begets life, without causing death;

which sheds light, without casting shadows;

which leads to Paradise and does not expel anyone therefrom;

it is the wood which Christ ascended, as a king mounting his chariot,

to defeat the devil who had usurped the power of death,

and to set mankind free from the thrall in which the devil held it.”

.

– St Theodore the Studite

.

.

PRAYER…

.

I adore You, O Christ, and I bless You,

because by Your Holy Cross You have saved the world.
