It can be argued that it’s more of a symbol than a monument. A symbol of a monumental sacrifice, made for us so that we might live our lives more deliberately, more thoughtfully, and with more love.
It’s a symbol used perhaps too often, causing us to become immune to its message. We tend to look past it, perhaps seeing it as ordinary.
Last year I sought out crosses during Holy Week for my daily Instagram posts.
This year I’m looking for more subtle reminders of Jesus’ monumental sacrifice. I’ll be looking for those crosses in the most ordinary of places, in things I see every day, hoping to start a habit pattern that results in a deeper awareness.

Monuments need not be monumental, perhaps they’re all around us.
We just need to see them.
To see all of this week’s crosses please click here and “like” A Pause, A Click, A Frozen Moment. Normally I post the previous week’s Instagrams on Sunday but this week I’ll be posting them the day they’re taken.
Thank you, Julie, for the reminder. I sure am glad to be reading this at the beginning of Holy Week. Happy Easter!
Happy Easter to you also Father! I’m missing being a part of a choir this year during this week. And…I’m missing my priestly neighbor! 🙂
