Today is the very beautiful, very special Feast Day of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. The Cross is the sign, the promise, of the our life in Jesus. We daily take up our own cross to be united to the great sacrifice of Christ in the hope of everlasting life.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
"If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me." --Luke 9:23
We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You. Because by Your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world!
