There’s Only One Purpose For A Cross – Sunday’s HomilyFr. Barnabas Powell
The fact that humans are so very aware of our own mortality means that the fear of death drives much of our intoxication with our passions. But at the center of Great Lent, the Church gives us the image of the Cross to drive us to embrace another way of living that is prepared for death. If you are going to follow Christ in any serious way, you must be willing to allow that which is unlike God in your life to die, in fact, to actively seek to “kill” that which will truly kill me if you don’t overcome it!
