The Church Grows: The Cost of Discipleship

Having reviewed the great events of the life of Christ, the second half of the Christians Year gives us opportunity to focus on Christ's Church. That Church has an ongoing mission, and that mission has always and will always include carrying a cross. Just as Christ's work as the Church's head included carrying his cross, our work as his body includes the same. While on earth, the Church's existence is characterized by struggle. But in heaven a crown awaits.
