Veneration of the Cross

April 15 @ 7:30 PM

The tradition of venerating the cross began in the 4th century with a Spanish nun who, on Holy Friday, would display parts of the holy wood of the cross on which Christ died, for veneration* by pilgrims. This custom made its way into several liturgies as part of the Triduum, the three-day period from the evening of Maundy Thursday through Easter evening.

We venerate the cross not because Christ died on it, but because by the cross, salvation has entered the whole world.
