なぜみんな十字架を持っているのですか

Why does everyone have a Cross?

目に見えない神の働きを、目に見えるかたちや動作で象徴するものは、教会にはたくさんあります。十字架も神の子「ハリストス」の救いの象徴ですし、十字を胸に手で描くのも、ハリストスへの信仰の象徴です。他にも数え切れないほどの象徴が教会にはあります。

What does it mean to take up your cross?

SERBIA OF MY HEART

What does it mean to take up your cross?

Saint Nicholas Velimirovich of Serbia:

“What does it mean to take up your cross? I means the willing acceptance, at the hand of Providence, of every means of healing, bitter though it may be, that is offered. Do great catastrophies fall on you? Be obedient to God’s will, as Noah was. Is sacrifice demanded of you? Give yourself into God’s hands with the same faith as Abram had when he went to sacrifice his son. Is your property ruined? Do your children die suddenly? Suffer it all with patience, cleaving to God in your heart, as Job did. Do your friends forsake you, and you find yourself surrounded by enemies? Bear it all without grumbling, and with faith that God’s help is at hand, as the apostles did.”

+ St. Nikolai Velimirovich, “The Great Fast – Third Sunday: Of the Holy Cross,” Homilies Volume 1: Commentary on the Gospel Readings for Great Feasts and Sundays Throughout the Year
