Thirty-Eighth Day of Lent: Reflections on the Cross

Cross of St. James

The Cross of St. James is adapted from the Cross Fitchy by adding a cross fleury (the arms end in fleurs-de-lys) or a cross moline (the ends of the arms are forked and rounded). In heraldry, it is also called the Santiago Cross or the cruz espada. James was one of the son’s of Zebedee and a disciple of Jesus.

“… whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be your slave (Matthew 20:26-27)

Prayer:
Savior, Servant and Sustainer, lead us to serve in this world and not conquer; lead us to live by faith and not fixed opinions; lead us that we may follow and not demand. Lead us Lord, for there is none like You. Amen.
