Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time
The Exaltation of the Holy Cross

This weekend we celebrate the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. For centuries, in the Roman Empire, the cross had been a sign of retribution and shame reserved for fugitive slaves and people who had committed heinous crimes. Jesus had done absolutely nothing to deserve it but he accepted it, out of love for sinful mankind His love — which reflected the love of the Father for all human beings — transformed the Cross into an instrument of hope and salvation for everyone. This is what makes the Cross a sacred symbol, a powerful reminder of God s immense love for us, and a source of salvation for all.

I also want to take this opportunity to invite all of you, especially to invite all the parents in our community to bring your children to the religious education classes....
