The way of the cross
As we start once again? to follow you on the way of the cross, we are apprehensive.?
For we are not sure? of ourselves.
On our journey we have often been afraid,?often sought the safe options, often fudged the sharp solution.
On our journey we have often tried to hide our real selves? from others, from ourselves? and from you.?
We, who dare to say we are following you,?know how faltering are our footsteps, how delicate our discipleships, how feeble our faith.
Yet still you call us? by name and invite us into your company and onto your road.?
So give us the courage and the commitment we need:?
Help us to look out for one another on the road; show us how we may share the duty and the joy? of discipleship, knowing that, in the end, it is you who have blazed the trail, you who accompany us all the way, you who will meet us on the road, and say our name. Amen
