Cross-Findings

The Fourth Week in Lent, Year B

AnimFireStarter

When our Hebrew ancestors were making their way though the desert, miracles upon miracles happened. They were attacked by a great number of poisonous snakes. What were they

going to do? So many died from snakebites. God told Moses to make a bronze model of a snake that looked like a pole. God instructed Moses to hold the snake-pole very high so that the people could see it. Whenever they kept their eyes on the bronze snake, they were protected.

St. John has this story in mind when he makes a comparison between the snake-pole and the cross of Jesus. The reading for today tells how St. John connects the two.

At times when you are sad, you just want to keep your eyes down. When this happens, go outside and tell yourself to look up. I’ll bet you’ll find trees and telephone poles that look like crosses. May all these “cross-findings” remind you of the protection and love of our dear savior.
