The Cross in our Lives
A very ancient feast slipped by for many this week – the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross. It commemorates the dedication of a church by that name in Jerusalem in the early fourth century. Sometimes it is associated with ‘the finding of the true cross’ by that extraordinary relic-collector, St Helena, the wife of the Emperor Constantine.
At the heart of the life-death-and-resurrection of Jesus, the cross is the core symbol of our faith.
