Ten feast day quotes for the Exaltation of the Holy Cross 

As we celebrate the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, we’re reminded of the centuries of Christians who have picked up their own crosses in imitation of Jesus! There is so much spiritual wisdom from these saints. Here are just a few nuggets for you to reflect on today.  

Happy feast day! 

“Yes, I love the cross, the cross alone, because I always see it behind Jesus’ shoulders.”
St. Pio of Pietrelcina 


“Let us bear our cross and leave it to God to determine the length and the weight.” 
St. Rose Philippine Duchesne 


“The cross is the school of love.” 
St. Maximilian Kolbe 


“One cannot desire freedom from the Cross when one is especially chosen for the Cross.” 
St. Theresa Benedicta of the Cross 


“God has, in his wisdom, foreseen from eternity the cross that he now presents to you as a gift from his inmost heart.” 
St. Francis de Sales 


“Remember that when your heart feels restless, when your heart feels hurt, when your heart feels like breaking… ‘I am precious to Him. He has called me by name. I am His. He loves me.’ And to prove that love He died on the cross.” 
St. Teresa of Calcutta
