The Cross

(first published Feb 2007)

I think this is especially appropriate for Ash Wednesday —

A quote from “The Challenge of the San Damiano Cross”, by Roch Niemier, O.F.M., in the Oct 2006 issue of St. Anthony Messenger.

The path into this discovery of self is the cross. The cross is a mirror. In seeing myself in that mirror, I see Christ Crucified, and in seeing Christ Crucified, I see my most authentic self. As I am transformed into that image, I become the person God always intended me to be.

I am sure there is so much more depth to this quote than what I am understanding right now, but it is something for me to meditate on this Lent.
