Sixth Day of Lent: Reflections on the Cross

Cross and Orb
Frequently adopted by Christian groups and mission societies, the Cross and Orb points to the sufficiency of Christ as Savior. The orb symbolizes the world, surmounted by the cross, symbolizing the triumph of the Savior over the sin of the world.

It was John the Baptist who declared the truth, “Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29)

Prayer: Remind me Blessed Savior that you have taken away not only the sins of the world, but my sin too.
Remind me Lord of Salvation that I no longer have to bear the weight of the world.
Grace me, Holy Redeemer, with the strength to love you by loving my neighbor in this world.
Amen.
