The Season of the Church

The Feast of the Cross

September 27-29, 2022
Thoout 17-19, 1739

Today's Readings

December 9, 2022
Hathor 30, 1739

Every action of Christ glorifies the Church, but the cross is the glory above all glory… The glory of the cross, by contrast, has enlightened all those who were blinded by ignorance. It has set free all those who were slaves of sin. It has redeemed the whole human race.
Let us glory in the cross of the Savior...
Cyril of Jerusalem
