Celebrating the Triumph of the Cross

We adore You, O Christ,
and we praise You,
because by Your Holy Cross
You have redeemed the world.

On the old calendar, there were two separate feasts honoring the True Cross of Our Lord. May 3 was celebrated as the Finding of the Holy Cross and September 14th was celebrated as the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. As that first link indicates, the two feasts were combined into today, so we celebrated accordingly.

Delicious cookies

Craft stick crosses
(The wet weather kept my frosting from drying out enough to wrap them up, so we made these craft stick crosses and played St. Helena's Hunt for the True Cross this afternoon.)

    I love the idea of the St. Helena Hunt ... so simple and yet fun ... I'll have to remember that for next year.

    The cookies look great too ... I wish we lived closer to share a bit more (your treats always look so darn yummy!)


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
