Know The Mystery Of The Cross

Exaltation of the Holy Cross 2016

The Exaltation of the Holy Cross is a most ancient, historical and Catholic feast.  Making the Sign of the Cross marks us as Catholics. Constantine’s victory through the Cross led to the conversion of pagan Rome to Christianity.  His mother, St. Helen, discovered the true Cross and centuries later the emperor, Heraclius, recovered it from the Persians and returned it to Jerusalem.  The Cross is consecrated by Christ’s Blood and is the sign of His love. We enter into His sufferings and death through the Cross so to triumph with Christ in heaven.
