Understanding the Cross of Christ

On this Holy Saturday, I would like to recommend that you pause for a brief period and listen to this lecture by Fr. Thomas Hopko, Understanding the Cross of Christ. Fr. Hopko is semi-retired now, but he served for years as the Dean of St. Vladimir’s Seminary. I’ve enjoyed listening to him for several years now. I’ve thought a number of times about writing on the topic of the Cross. Fr. Hopko makes many of the same points I would make. He even quotes some of the sources I would use. But I think he makes those points better than I could ever make them. If you’ve had a typical American exposure to Christianity, it might be that you’ve never heard some of the things he says. Today would be a good day to hear them.
