The Exaltation of the Holy Cross

The Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Dear Family of Mary!

Our Lady encouraged us to venerate her Son on the Cross from the early days of her presence in Medjugorje.  Along with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on Thursdays, she began the practice of venerating the Holy Cross every Friday evening after the Mass in Medjugorje.  Here is a message in which she encouraged this veneration;

Saturday, May 28, 1983 (To Jelena):
“It is very beautiful to remain Thursdays, for the Adoration of my Son in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. It is likewise beautiful to venerate the Cross each Friday. I wish that every Saturday, which is the day that the Church had dedicated to me, you will consecrate to me at least a quarter of an hour. Meditate during this time, on my life, my messages, and pray.”

Our Lady has built this Veneration of the Holy Cross into the weekly schedule of St. James Parish.  And it has become a beautiful time of prayer for all of us.  Jesus speaks eloquently from the Cross.  It is His pulpit!  From the Cross all graces flow!

In the following message Our Lady gives us beautiful direction for our spiritual life, which culminates in the Cross:

February 2, 2020 

“Dear children,
by the act of the decision and love of God,
I am chosen to be the Mother of God
and your mother.

But also by my will
and my immeasurable love for the Heavenly Father
and my complete trust in Him,
my body was the chalice of the God-man.

I was in the service of truth, love and salvation,
as I am now among you
to call you, my children, apostles of my love,
to be carriers of truth;
to call you to spread His words,
the words of salvation,
by your will and love for my Son:
that with your actions you may show,
to all those who have not come to know my Son,
His love.

You will find strength in the Eucharist –
my Son who feeds you with His Body
and strengthens you with His Blood.

My children,
fold your hands [in prayer]
and look at the Cross in silence.

In this way,
you are drawing faith to be able to transmit it;
you are drawing truth to be able to discern;
you are drawing love that you may know to love truly.

My children, apostles of my love,
fold your hands [in prayer],
look at the Cross.

Only in the Cross is salvation.

Thank you.”

Thank you, Dearest Mother, for teaching us to venerate your Son’s Cross.  It is through that Cross, that Jesus saved us all.  We humbly thank Him, and praise Him for His love.  And we thank you, Mother, for drawing us ever closer to Jesus. Amen

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
