Holy Cross Day is known as the Exaltation of the Holy Cross in the East and the Triumph of the Holy Cross in Rome. It is a celebration of Christ’s redeeming death on the cross, where once he was mocked for the humiliating shame of such torture and public cruelty. The feast is celebrated 14 September in remembrance of churches built on the site of Christ’s crucifixion and his tomb by St. Helena, mother of the Emperor Constantine, on this day in 335.
