What Cross to Carry?

by Gil Camporazo

Uneven Cross
1. Every Christian nation does observe Lenten Season to venerate Jesus' Passion from Gethsemane to Golgotha.

2. In the Philippines, there are people, male and female, have offered themselves to be nailed on the cross for they believe they've accomplished something spiritual.

3. Small ambulant vendors have taken advantage of this jam-packed occasion especially the Church and the plaza by selling their finger-foods.

4. Many family members have gone home to join with their family on this Holy Days, not only to observe the Holy Week celebration but to be with their parents, siblings and relatives anew.

5. Are the people united in this season as one in Christ? Do they stop their day-to-day activities just to be in the Church and listen to the "7 words of Christ" homily from their Minister?

6. Jesus died on the cross to redeem the sinners. And what are the sinners are doing in this occasion?

7. "Via Cruzes" (The way of the Cross) is a tradition among Christians and is dramatized by the youth in one-act play which ended at the place designated as a virtual place of Golgotha or Calvary.

8. Is this event is only effective during this Lenten Seasons? Why and why?

9. How is peace and order observed in this season? Do petty crimes and other criminal acts minimized if not totally stopped.

10. Let's pray to the Lord that He will forgive those who do know what they're doing is wrong.

11. Let's forgive one another as we forgive our own spouse, relatives who have sinned against us.

12. Remember Jesus doesn't come for the righteous but for the sinners. Does anyone sinless?

13. Getting rid of sin is spiritual and loving the sinners is humane. Let's love one another in the name of Christ and carry our cross according to our own faith.
