St. Peter Damian – 

The Cross reveals the true nature of sin, it unveils the power of sacrificial goodness and it challenges what we have taken for granted.  The church cannot face this world as Peter originally had in mind.  The cross is at the center of our faith.  What are we going to do about it?  It is easy to follow Jesus on Sundays. What about the rest of the week? Do we allow the cross to challenge us?
