Sunday Reflection, Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (September 14): Freedom of the Cross

Teilhard de Chardin

“[I]n spite of the profound readjustments that are being made in our phenomenal vision of the world, the Cross still stands; it rears itself up ever more erect at the common meeting place of all values and all problems, deep in the heart of mankind. It marks and must continue more than ever to mark the division between what rises and what falls back. But this is on one condition, and one only: that it expand itself to the dimensions of [today]. — Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

This Sunday we celebrate the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.  The readings can be found here. This week’s reflection comes from David W. Parsons, author of the outstanding blog Elias Icons.  (Mr. Parsons’ blog was inspired by Teilhard de Chardin so I feel like he is a kindred spirit). I encourage you to read the entire reflection here
