Liturgical Guide: Exaltation of the Holy Cross

15th c. Altarpiece of St. Helena; Aragon, Spain - Wikipedia

The hymns selected for the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (also known as the Triumph of the Cross) honour the Cross on which Our Lord died out of love for us, and through his death on the Cross - brings Salvation to the world. Celebrated on September 14th, the date for this public veneration of the Cross marks the dedication of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in 4th century. It is built upon the spot that St. Helena, the mother of Emperor Constantine, during a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, discovered a portion of the True Cross.
