14th September – Exaltation of the Holy Cross

I mentioned a few days ago that I’m having my week’s annual retreat at a parishioner’s holiday home. Here is a picture – I’m not complaining!


Today is the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. The significance is summed up in the prayer of St Alphonsus Liguori that forms part of the Stations of the Cross: “We adore you O Christ and we praise you, because by your Holy Cross, you have redeemed the world.”

Here is a Bible Alive commentary.
