September 14: saint of the day, name day


The Saint of the day 14 September is Exaltation of the Holy Cross, which name day is celebrated and other saints who are celebrated on this date.

Exaltation of the Holy Cross

On the day of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, the cross on which Jesus was nailed was remembered, which was found by Saint Elena on 14 September 320 according to what is traditionally narrated.

On the same day, the relic was raised by the then bishop of Jerusalem before the people, inviting everyone present to his adoration.

The color established for this liturgical celebration in the Churches is red, which testifies to the passion of Jesus by recalling the Holy Cross.

The exaltation of the Holy Cross puts us in touch with an aspect of the heart of Jesus that could only be revealed by God.

The wound caused by man's sin and ingratitude becomes the source, not only of an overabundance of love, but also of a new creation in glory.

Through the folly of the Cross, suffering can become wisdom and the glory promised to Jesus can be an object of sharing for all those who want to follow him.

Death, disease, the multiple wounds that man receives in the flesh and in the heart, all this becomes an opportunity to let himself be involved more by the very life of God made Man on earth.

With this feast all the faithful are invited by the Church to let themselves be flooded by this divine wisdom, lived fully by Mary at the Cross, thanks to which the suffering of the world becomes, through the blood of Christ, a cry of love and a seed of glory for everyone.
