Live the Cross

The Lamentations of the Mother of God (glass icon, Romania)

From “Sermons and Articles” on the webpage of St. Aidan Orthodox Church, South Cranbrook, British Columbia, Canada :

“The Ministry of Suffering”

… Indeed, I would be so bold as to say that chronic suffering is the most important of all ministries.  …

Jesus became incarnate to enter into our suffering. And those who suffer “live the Cross.” This ministry of patient endurance in a very basic way reveals Christ more powerfully than religious activities (such as writing Orthodox Christian blog posts).
