Jesus tells us to “take up our cross and follow him”. In a warehouse of crosses – which one fits us? How do we see the cross? With the promise of pain? Suffering? When it comes to dealing with suffering, do we face it with passive acceptance or do we accept it with a purpose? That question is always before us. By taking up one’s cross and following Christ it does not indicate that we are passively submitting to oppression, discrimination and abuses in their varied forms.
