The Colors of the Cross: A Retreat Guide for Lent
The message is clear: in order to climb to the heights of holiness, to reach the glory of heavenly light, we have to pass through the sufferings and sorrows of the Cross. The monks of Middle Ages created a phrase summarizing this theological lesson: per crucem ad lucem - through the Cross, to the light.
That theological truth is embodied architecturally in the dome of St. Peter's Basilica and the four statues placed in the pillars supporting that dome. Let's look at these statues, to learn better how we can offer up our sufferings and carry our crosses.
