Holy Cross

FEAST OF THE EXALTATION OF THE HOLY CROSS


Jesus is exalted "in a total gift of himself on the Cross, and on the Cross itself—the supreme act of love—he is glorified because love is the true glory, the divine glory" (Benedict XVI).

"Through your holy cross you have redeemed the world."

Mosaic of Christ with Adam and Eve by Marko Rupnik.
"He emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness. And [being] found human in appearance, He humbled Himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross" (Philippians 2:7-8).

Georges Rouault, Crucifixion, 1918
"There is no cross, big or small, in our life which the Lord does not share with us" (Pope Francis).
