  • Taking up the cross

    When Jesus said, “Take up your cross and follow me,” he was speaking figuratively, about denying oneself and living sacrificially for God and others. But on Good Friday, local Christians took the instruction literally and carried a large replica of the cross around Bardstown.

    “It means that one day a year, I’ll be able to bear some of the burden that Christ bore for us,” said Robin Brock, who was one of those who carried the cross down Third Street from the Old Courthouse.
