Dr. Phil Chavez of The Men’s Academy (themensacademy.org) gives compelling teachings to the men of the diocese of Austin, Texas about facing the Cross with respect to God, others, and self. As every baptized person assumes the identity of Jesus Christ, so also each has taken on His journey, even His path of the Cross. All suffering should be embraced as Jesus did: in the identity of a Beloved Son and for the glory of the Father. Among some interesting points, Dr. Chavez states that Christ’s Cross teaches us our value and empowers us to overcome fear.
