Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


God: Do you really believe as Jesus taught that if you ask me for something you shall receive it?

Me: I believe that you will give me everything I really need if I ask for it.

God: You're right. Just as Jesus only healed those who asked, you need to ask for what is most important to you then be able to recognize it when it is given.
