the cross & suffering … (quickie quote!)

Out all day at an amazing ICM Women’s Conference (more on that later) so here’s a quote for this Saturday in Lent to keep our minds focused on the Cross.

“What has the Cross given to those who have gazed upon it and to those who have touched it?  What has the Cross left in each one of us?  You see, it gives us a treasure that no one else can give:  the certainty of the faithful love which God has for us.  A love so great that it enters into our sin and forgives it, enters into our suffering and gives us the strength to bear it.  It is a love which enters into death to conquer it and save us.”    Pope Francis
