One of my fond childhood memories is of my mom making crosses out of the blessed palms on Palm Sunday. When my husband and I were dating, I made crosses for some of the children after Mass. The first year we were married, I made crosses for some of the children after Mass. The second year we were married, I made a cross for our little baby, one for my husband and one for me. Yesterday, I made 7 crosses (one for each member of our family).
Dear Lord, please help us to carry our crosses without complaint.
