The Star and the Cross

The star that guided the wise men has become to me a symbol of the light of Christ in my life, guiding my path as I seek my goal of attaining salvation. I like this image of the star, because it contains in it the way; the Cross of Christ. Those who seek Jesus and His promise of eternal life must take up their Cross to follow Him. Every day is a struggle to avoid the easy path the world would have us follow, every day to be on guard to stay free of sin, every day, to look to Our Lord in prayer and in the Sacraments to strengthen our moral and spiritual life, to live in the world but not be of the world.
Follow the light.

shirley, that is true. those who do not pick up their cross and follow after Christ. very true. staying out of the world is very hard because of all the traps it has. staying free from sin can be a constant battle for some. but if they trust in Jesus and learn to lean on Him and offer up everything to Him their battle against sin becomes easier to fight.
