More And More Like Church
Holy Joyful Day

Exaltation of the Holy Cross

The cross is the supreme and perfect act of the love of Jesus, who lays down his life for his friends. 

 Through the Cross, our whole life gains light, strength and hope. The Cross reveals the whole depth of love contained in the original design of the Creator; through the Cross, all is healed and brought to completion. That is why life lived with faith in Christ dead and risen becomes light.

Benedict XVI
