Let Us Pray
Dear Jesus, I am so grateful for the Cross because it was upon that Cross that you redeemed me. Sadly, so many deny the power of the Cross. May I courageously witness to the world that I am a friend of the Cross.
Scripture for Reflection
"Brethren, join in imitating me, and mark those who so live as you have an example in us. For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their end is destruction, their god is the belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things" (Philippians 3:17–19).
