Reflection for the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

14 September 2012 is the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Listen to Pope Benedict XVI in this video, as he reflects on today's very sacred celebration: "The Apostle Paul says, 'We preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles' (I Cor 1: 23). Christians, however, do not exalt just any cross but the Cross which Jesus sanctified with his sacrifice, the fruit and testimony of immense love. Christ on the Cross pours out his Blood to set humanity free from the slavery of sin and death."
