Salvation and the Holy Cross
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 and the dedication 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: his salvific death on the Cross and His #Resurrection.
