Spirituality of the Cross

Spirituality of the Cross

An essential element of our charism is expressed in our name, the Order of the Holy Cross. Our spirituality of the cross is rooted in the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus (the Paschal Mystery). We recognize that there is much suffering and pain in the world, but we also believe the resurrection of Jesus guarantees that in our suffering and pain there is hope and healing. Because of this, we emphasize the glorious, or triumphant, cross.
