The Triumph of the Holy Cross

The Triumph of the Cross means that optimism wins.

It means that everything happens for a reason, and good comes from suffering, even if we don't see it.  Every instance of suffering is an opportunity for growth, for outreach, for love.

The world stays the same.  But our God came down to suffer FOR us.  He came down so that we may no longer be powerless and no longer fear. 

Today, we celebrate the Triumph of the Cross.
All things work together for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.
~The Book of Romans, Chapter 8, verse 28

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
