Pope Francis at Santa Marta explains the meaning of the Cross

2015-09-14

On the day that the Church remembers the meaning of the Cross, Pope Francis explained that a Christian must imitate Jesus Christ. He did not reject the Cross. He accepted it and accepted the humiliation of crucifixion for the love of humanity.

POPE FRANCIS
"When we look at Jesus on the Cross, there are some beautiful paintings, but the reality is another: He was torn, bleeding. FLASH  We must contemplate the Cross of Jesus, but not those artistic crosses, beautifully painted. Look at the reality, what the cross was at that time. And look at His path and at God, who destroyed Himself, who lowered Himself to save us. This is also the path of the Christian.”

He concluded by saying this way of thinking is what would lead to humility.

At the Mass were members of Pope Francis' Council of Cardinals, who are helping the Pope reform the Roman Curia. This is their 11th meeting and it will last until Wednesday.
