Holy Cross Day

Rowan Williams was still Archbishop of Wales when he said this:

All I want to say about the image of the Holy Cross this morning is that the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ is where we wake up. 'Awake, sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will give you life.' Our sin is like sleep, like a bad dream. We are locked in ourselves. The serious tangled insides of the human mind, the human heart, human speech trap us more and more. Here the reality of God stands against the reality of our minds and hearts.

-- Rowan Williams

I found it in a reflection by John Pridmore on Holy Cross Day in the Church Times. I urge you to click through and read the whole thing if you have time. It's all good.
