Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time (A), Sept. 14, 2014

The feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross celebrates two historical events: the discovery of the True Cross by Saint Helena, the mother of the Emperor Constantine, in 320 under the temple of Venus in Jerusalem and the dedication in 335 of the basilica and shrine built on Calvary by Constantine, which mark the site of the Crucifixion.

However the feast, more than anything else, is a celebration and commemoration of God's greatest work, the salvation of humankind. So, own your sins; take them to yourself and you will be wrapped in a tender blanket of love tendered by God. Your welcome will be a declaration that sin truly can be subsumed into the splendor of God’s ongoing love and forgiveness.

Catholicism is a religion of the cross and of all that it stood for. By placing the crucifix in our homes and wearing it proudly, we are a constant reminder of Christ’s victory over death. The cross is a symbol of our salvation.  Each time we look upon and venerate the cross; each time we cross ourselves in the name of the Father, Son and Spirit, we profess our willingness to take Jesus seriously, to live the radical Gospel fully, and to die for our beliefs, our values and commitment to God, to Jesus and one another (Sanchez, PD, NCR for 8/29-9/11).

How are you proclaiming and witnessing to the power of the cross over death and all that is not life giving? How are you taking up your crosses and following Jesus? How are you a help to others as they carry their crosses?
