Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross
Today is the Triumph of the Holy Cross. It is a beautiful feast to meditate on the grace of salvation. Thinking of Christ’s total gift of self in turning His life over to men to be crucified, a cruel and most inhumane form of execution, it inspires me to follow more closely in my Savior and Spouse’s footsteps. I am ever humbled and grateful to my good God for inviting me to be His bride through the Profession of the Evangelical Counsels.
