Jesus knows very well the crosses you and I carry each and every day. His Sacred Heart is filled with compassion and mercy for our sufferings and sorrows because he knows intimately what it feels like to carry a cross. Jesus carried his cross for you and for me all the way to Calvary. Through his death and resurrection, Jesus has won for us our salvation. The cross, an instrument of torture and horrific death, has become for us Christians the symbol of hope, new life and exciting possibilities.
Let this crucifix be a reminder you that you never need to bear your own cross alone
