Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Unfortunately, I'm posting a bit late on the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. What a marvelous, paradoxical Feast it is! Somehow, we see the victory won by Christ in the midst of His suffering and death; Christ, the King of King and Lord of Lords, is reigning victoriously from the wood of the Cross.

Ave crux, spes unica! Hail, O Cross, our one hope!

Tomorrow, we remember Our Lady of Sorrows -- our Blessed Mother, at the foot of the Cross. Let us join our hearts to the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts in sorrow for our sins and in grateful joy for the mysteries of our Salvation.
