Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross: 9/14

Image source

On September 14, the Church celebrates the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

For your reflection you'll find the scriptures for the day's Mass here, a prayer and the great hymn, Lift High the Cross...

God of Glory,
the Cross shines as a sign
of obedience to your will
and a symbol of your love
for the world.


Bless us who find salvation
in the cross of Christ;
may we always recognize his glory
in the weak, suffering and condemned of the world.


We ask this through Christ, crucified and exalted,
who is Lord forever and ever.
Amen.



Lift High the Cross by Principle Chorus on Grooveshark
