Weekly Devotion – September 17thWeekly Devotions
In Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus extends to us the invitation to participate in His mission by taking up our cross and following in His footsteps. By imitating the Lord in His generous self-giving, we find the joy and peace that Christ alone can give to us. By carrying our burdens and caring for others, we find our true selves, for generosity brings out the best in us. Taking up our crosses is not the easiest thing to do, but it always brings us closer to God and our faith.
We pray together: St. Jude, I put all my confidence in you. You are my source of hope as I carry my cross each day.
