The word of God places us before the glorious One who was crucified, so that our whole lives...take place in the sight of him and in the light of his mystery. In every time and place, evangelization always has as its starting and finishing points Jesus Christ, the Son of God (cf. Mk1:1); and the Crucifix is the supremely distinctive sign of him who announces the Gospel: a sign of love and peace, a call to conversion and reconciliation. …[L]et us fix our gaze upon him and let us be purified by his grace. ~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily at Opening Mass of Synod of Bishop , Oct 7, 2012
