Exaltation of the Holy Cross

'O Crux, Ave, Spes Unica' - 'Hail the Cross, our only hope' 

'...the life of a good religious man is a cross, but it is a cross that conducts him to Paradise'. Imitation of Christ 

Instead of reproaching Our Lord for having sent us this cross, I cannot fathom the depths of divine love which move Him so to treat us. God must love [my] father very dearly to sent him such suffering. (St Therese, Letters)
