HIS CROSS IS OUR HOPE
“Jesus’ cross, said Pope Francis, is the anchor that has saved us, the rudder that has redeemed us, and our hope, because “by His cross we have been healed and embraced so that nothing and no one can separate us from His redeeming love.” “In the midst of isolation when we are suffering from a lack of tenderness and chances to meet up, and we experience the loss of so many things,” he said, “let us once again listen to the proclamation that saves us: He is risen and is living by our side.” “So we embrace His cross in the hard- ships of the present time, and make room in our hearts “for the creativity that only the Spirit is capable of inspiring.” “Embracing the Lord in order to embrace hope: that is the strength of faith, which frees us from fear and gives us hope.”
