This essay is an examination of the feast of the Exaltation of the Cross as celebrated in Western Christianity at the beginning of the third millennium. While mentioning the historical events that occasioned its admission to the liturgical calendar, this essay focuses on the euchology and theology of the feast with a view to identifying its contemporary significance. With these foundations in mind, specific pastoral-liturgical suggestions are made to enrich the celebration of this feast in a parochial setting.
