The Exaltation of the Holy Cross
Gospel – John 3:13-17
On this Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, my reflection is: is the Holy Cross exalted in my life? It’s the love and the devotion towards the Holy Cross that Exalt the Holy Cross in our life. Holy Cross is the summary of the Salvation History. It’s the foundation of faith. It’s the source of hope and it’s the expression of love. The Holy Cross is that makes the difference in our sufferings. The Holy Cross purifies our personal sufferings, those which we undertake for our attaining our goals, by the love of the other. The Holy Cross transforms our sufferings inflicted by others into instruments of grace for the same. The Holy Cross elevates the unexplainable sufferings into the awaiting with love for the third day – day of resurrection.
