Feast of the Triumph of the Cross

This Sunday we celebrate the feast of the Exaltation of the Cross. The cross is a great mystery - the complete self-emptying of God through his Son Jesus. It presents the paradox of an almighty God offering himself in a vulnerable way to the worst elements of human cruelty by the very creatures he is trying to save. The power of the cross is the self-giving love of God, its glory hidden in the seeming failure of crucifixion.

The cross is the most potent place of reconciliation between hatred and love, forgiveness and revenge. It is a bridge between God and man, between heaven and earth. Jesus hangs there, reconciling and changing man’s destiny forever. That same all-giving love of Calvary exalts the cross, in spite of its suffering, and is still available to us today.
