Lift high the cross,
the love of Christ proclaim
till all the world adore
his sacred Name.
I have heard people, even some who claim a Christian identity, question whether or not it matters if there really was a cross. “Does it matter if he really died? Can’t we just learn from his life?” they wonder.
If He did not die, then He did not rise.
If He did not rise, then Death is undefeated.
Others ask, “Why did he have to die? Couldn’t God have washed our sins by some other means?”
But, He didn’t.
The only cleansing water we can hope in is the Blood of the Cross,
which washes whiter than snow.
God bless you all this Holy Feast Day.
