The readings at Mass yesterday – the 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time spoke of the call to the Cross made to all disciples. The Gospel Acclamation used another metaphor, in stark contrast to the image of Death that the world sees the Cross to be, but it reminds that the Cross does not end in death but glory and life eternal.
I am the light of the world, says the Lord;
anyone who follows me will have the light of life.
- What draws you to the Lord and his goodness today?
- What have you received from him that, today, you can share with others?
