The Holy Cross Is Love

Jesus on The Cross, drawn by Princess ~2010
I had completely forgotten about this poem that I wrote last year in honor of The Exaltation of the Holy Cross.  Looking through my archives to see how we celebrated, I found it!  (And these drawings:) I am sharing it again as we remember The Cross of our Lord that sets us free.

Love complete...
is the symbol of horror that became the symbol of hope...
With the death of Our Lord on the Cross, came the dawn of eternal life.
The instrument of our salvation is forever a sacred symbol that we cling to...
In our sufferings and sorrows, we are never alone.
We visit, we kneel, we lay prostrate, we sit quietly,
gazing at the One who gave it all.
Complete surrender at the foot of His cross brings peace,
filling our cups with grace,
quenching our desire for heaven,
Until we are in His arms,
Love Complete.
