Good morning, happy Monday, many blessings, and delighted Holy Cross Day.
Celebrated on September 14th, Holy Cross day is a day which honors and commemorates the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made on the cross for our salvific liberation. It is from this festivity that our church takes its name. The Holyrood or Holy Rood is a Christian relic alleged to be part of the True Cross on which Jesus died. The word derives from the Old English rood, meaning a pole and the cross, via Middle English, or the Scots haly ruid ("holy cross").
