The Third Wednesday in Lent: Cross

Filed under: Lent

“Your cross” means your own anxieties and your sufferings in your own body, which itself is shaped in a way already like a cross.

Tertullian (Tunisia/155-225)

How is a disciple to know which is his or her cross? We receive it upon entering the discipleship of the suffering Lord, and come to recognize it in the community of Jesus.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer (Germany/1906-1945)

Every day during Lent, a brief thought, meditation, prayer, or picture will be posted here. You’re invited to use this as a jumping off point for your own spiritual practices during this season of preparation for Easter. If you would like to share a response, please comment below!
