Bearing The Cross After Jesus (Mark 15:16-41)

All three of the synoptic gospels speak of Simon of Cyrene, compelled to bear the cross of Jesus. Holy Scripture gives us no reason to suppose that Simon of Cyrene had been a believer in Christ before that day when the Roman soldiers compelled him to assume the weight of the Holy Cross but that was the very beginning of his discipleship. He became the model of those who followed Jesus to the place of crucifixion outside the walls of Jerusalem.

In the petitions of the Great Litany, we begin by asking "for the peace from above and for the salvation of our souls."

Devout Centurion

The account of the devout centurion that appears in both Matthew and Luke, but not in Mark, and obviously it is Matthew's version that we are considering today. The centurion serves as a model, I believe, for how Christ our Lord is to be approached, unless Christ our Lord is to be approached as a figment of our own imagination or simply as a projection of what we want out of religion.
