Holy Cross Day

Daily Reading for September 14 • Holy Cross Day

Christ on the cross cries:

My people, what wrong have I done to you?

What good have I not done for you?

Listen to me. Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by?

Look and see if there is any sorrow like to my sorrow.

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you,

because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
