Holy Cross Rises Above Destruction

Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (September 14)

Holy CrossHandout or Bulletin Insert.

Description: This leaflet for the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross can be used as a bulletin insert or handout. It’s a reflection about going through the five stages of grieving to discover the triumph of the Cross over the bad things that happen in our lives. Faith is tested and strengthened in crises. Spiritual growth doesn’t normally occur in easy, comfortable times. We cannot rise to higher realms if we don’t first realize that there is something to climb away from. Faith tells us that there is a much bigger picture than what we could know or understand. Faith tells us that God has been working a plan—his own strategies—to turn our sufferings into a greater good.
