Homily given at the 4:30 p.m. Mass on Saturday, September 14, 2019, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, by Fr. Ed Fride, Pastor, Christ the King Catholic Church.
After first describing why the Feast is being celebrated today instead of the Vigil Mass for the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Fr. Ed explains that the Feast of the Exaltation, or Triumph, of the Holy Cross celebrates three events: the Finding of the Cross, the Dedication of the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre, and the recovery of the Relics of the Cross after their theft by the pagans.
