By Thy Cross

Don Marco

Relics of the True Cross

Don Marco met us in front of St. Mary Major yesterday and brought us to Santa Croce in Gerusalemme. It was a deeply-moving experience, first, to enter the church while the mid-afternoon prayer was being chanted. Second, to view the relics of the True Cross while reciting: We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee, for by Thy Holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world (part of my morning prayer) is really beyond words. Third, to have Don Marco celebrate Mass in the little chapel of Our Lady of Good Help was a precious gift. Chanting in that little chapel of live acoustics at the end of the day was truly enchanting.
