The Exaltation of the Holy Cross – 

What does the cross mean to us and how readily do we accept all that it represents? We know what the mention of a cross did to Peter. It frightened him so much that he tried to talk Jesus out of it. When we look upon that cross what does it say to us? It speaks to me of unselfishness, it speaks of love, it speaks of concern for others, and it speaks of a suffering servant.
