Then to all Jesus said, “If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross every day and follow me.

Luke 9 : 23

SIGNS OF THE CROSS

lifetime friend of the aged...

a triumphant display...

a vocation in life...

and staff for the journey...

always in focus...

a waiting challenge...

in which hope is placed...

a living stone...

a vehicle for life...

symbolic yet real...

it inspires affection...

is preached and proclaimed...

clothed and carried...

fashioned and formed...

erected and prayed on...

touched and displayed...

a sign of sainthood

shared by a Mother...

chiselled in stone...

and carved in wood...

carried in faith...

and covered with tears...

a reason to rest...

before the journey continues...

adorned and embellished...

a cause for thirst...

shared with a loved one...

and approached with affection...

kissed by kids...

a lesson in love...

presented to priests...

and shared with friends...

held and carried...

faced alone...

for one and for all...

eucharistic...

a grave marker...

a road sign...

where Mary stands...

to share our final agony...
