Exaltation of the Holy Cross
This feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross celebrates several historic events. First the discovery of the True Cross by Saint Helen, mother of Emperor Constantine who was the first Roman emperor to legalize Christianity. Second the dedication of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre a church that was built over the site of Jesus’ Crucifixion and burial. And third, the return of the Cross (after it had been held for fifteen years by non-Christian Persians) to Jerusalem.
