Homily: The Cross Carries You
Quote: "It is no longer you who carry the cross; it is the cross that carries you: The cross does not crush but exalts you."
Only days later I was listening to a fellow parishioner talk of his experiences growing up. In the end he shared the story of the necessary responsibilities he shouldered for his handicapped brother, finishing with the truth of the matter as he relayed, "And, you know, I can tell you, everything I became and accomplished I can credit to my brother."
HADN'T I JUST HEARD THIS???
