The True Cross

Exaltation of the Holy Cross 2017

Relics of the true Cross are in our shrine and give us a link to the origins of this feast.  The Cross had its antecedents in the Old Testament but its exaltation began with Constantine’s victory under its banner.  His mother, St. Helen, discovered the true Cross and later the Emperor Herclius saved it from the Persians.  The mystery of the Cross, if known and lived, will be our path to a glorious triumph in heaven and peace and consolation during the trials and sufferings of this life.
