Take the Crucifix off the Wall

Holy Week is upon us and we find ourselves faced with the mystery of redemption, symbolized by the crucifix we put on our walls.

At this time of year, I always think about a man I knew who would take his crucifix off the wall, and place it right in front of him as we worked. The physical reminder of putting Christ at the center of our lives is powerful.

This week, try to meditate on the crucifix. Take it off the wall, and think about a particular station of the cross that speaks to you.

Snippet from the Show

“Christ died for our sins. The crucifix needs to come off the wall and be placed squarely before our eyes.”
