People of the Cross

We are people of the cross. Paul reminds us of this when he says, “For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” We believe that we are saved by the power of the cross. St. Gaspar often encouraged the members of the community “to study the book of the cross.”

We encounter Christ whenever we encounter the cross in our lives or in our world. We need not go looking for the cross, for the cross will find us one way or another. We can choose to embrace the cross or to flee from it, but we cannot avoid it. The cross will be part of our lives no matter what.
