“Christ on the Cross” (detail) by Velazquez

“In the Cross is salvation; in the Cross is life; in the Cross is protection against our enemies; in the Cross is infusion of heavenly sweetness; in the Cross is strength of mind; in the Cross is joy of spirit; in the Cross is excellence of virtue; in the Cross is perfection of holiness. There is no salvation of soul, nor hope of eternal life, save in the Cross.” (Fr. Thomas à Kempis, The Inner Life)


September 14 is the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.
