Sept. 14, 2015 (Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross)

Today’s Feast recalls the finding of the “true cross” by St. Helena, the mother of the Emperor Constantine. We recall that it was Jesus’ obedience to the Father’s will in dying on the cross that brought salvation to us all. As the great Christological Hymn in the letter to the Philippians tells us that Jesus emptied Himself not grasping at His Godhead but being willing to empty Himself and suffer death, even death on a cross. Let us follow God’s will in our lives as Jesus did.
