EVENTS IN MARCH
Third Sunday of Lent
The cross stands in the midst of the church in the middle of the Lenten season not merely to remind men of Christ’s redemption and to keep before them the goal of their efforts, but also to be venerated as that reality by which man must live to be saved. He who does not take up his cross and follow me is not worthy of me (Matthew 10:38). For in the Cross of Christ Crucified lies both the power of God and the wisdom of God for those being saved (1 Corinthians 1:24).
