"As they were marching out, they came upon a man of Cyre′ne, Simon by name; this man they compelled to carry his cross." - Matthew 27:32
I’m Brian Jodice and this is PICK UP THE SIX Podcast, and today we bring you the first in a two-part special series as we unpack the story of Simon of Cyrene, a man who in a moment’s notice was thrust into helping another man who had been beaten and was on the path to his eventual death.
It is Holy Thursday in the Christian faith and we are leaning in with Father James Hamel, a family friend, Catholic priest, and Colonel in the United States Air Force.
It’s an powerful story about picking up the six, and I hope you enjoy it.
