Exaltation of the Cross

 

We have two feasts in honor of the Cross of Christ, one commemorates its discovery by St. Helene, the mother of Constantine, and the other the exposition of the Cross at Jerusalem in 629 by the Emperor Heraclius, after getting it back from the hands of the Persians who got hold of it in 614.
