Sowing Seeds
22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
September 3, 2017
As we take up our cross, we recall our own Savior's journey with the cross.  We unite our sacrifices to his one perfect sacrifice.  We praise him, for through his cross, we have life.

O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree,
your death has brought us life eternally.
So shall our song of triumph ever be:
Praise to the Crucified for victory!
"Lift High the Cross, stanzas 4 & 5
