                                                                           – Feast of the Our Lady Sorrows 



      September, 14th – Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross **



      adore you O Christ and we bless you, 

                                     because by your Holy Cross you have
      redeemed the world.”


      started to explain about the “exaltation” which means “lifting up” and questioned


      do Catholics have a crucifix at church and in our rooms?

      – We
      remember Jesus better.

      – We
      remember what Jesus did.

      – We
      remember that Jesus died for us.


      More importantly, Jesus rose from the dead and saved
      us from our sins.




      –  The crucifix is given a place of Honor.

      –  Cross with Jesus; Catholic Cross

      –  Catholics have Jesus on the Cross to remember
      his sacrifice.



      Jesus did many good

      – miracles

      – taught as a teacher; gave
      us the beatitudes (the Sermon on the Mount)

      – died on the Cross as the
      Son of God, and the Son of Mary

      – Jesus
      died for ME, so I don’t have to suffer from my sins.

      – A
      sign of contradiction, but the symbol of

      – Love
      is what makes the Cross so powerful.


      – We
      exalt the Cross because it’s the tool that makes us aware of how much Jesus
      loves us,       and how evil sin is.


      Father told us the
      story about marriage and that when the bride and bridegroom go to the church 

      married, they carry a Crucifix with them. The priest blesses the Crucifix
      and the bride 

      puts her right hand on the Crucifix, as the groom puts his right
      hand over hers. 
      Both are together 

      and united to the Cross, and
      the priest covers their hands and prays together so they 

      wouldn’t forget to
      sacrifice for each other 
      in their marriage.


      ** September, 15th – Feast of
      the Our Lady Sorrows **

      Our Lady of Sorrow represents Mary and her sadness when
      she knelt by Jesus on the Cross.

      – She was accepting of what was being done; did not
      feel anger

      – She worked with Jesus and showed us how to react to
      unjustly actions, or to “turn the other cheek”


      We learn from the Cross as Catholics, that’s why we
      look at the Cross.

      Jesus saved the World. We could do little to sacrifice like Jesus.


      13 No one
      has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, 
      that is, the Son of Man who is
      in heaven
      14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the
      wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 
      15 that
      whoever believes in Him should not perish but
       have eternal life.16 For God
      so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in
      Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 
      17 For God
      did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world
      through Him might be saved. –
