Holy Cross Day

For Sunday, 14 September 2014

Comments welcome – not too sure if this hangs together or needs more editing. Thanks!

In the church calendar, today we celebrate the Holy Cross.  Celebration seems to me to be an odd word to use as why would anyone want to celebrate the device used to torture, and Crucifix our Lord? It seems a vile and repulsive thing to do.  The cross forms the corner stone of our faith for upon it the Love of God was poured out in His act of saving Grace towards us.
