Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross 
Today’s feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross is near and dear to me. My German Catholic ancestors on both sides immigrated from the Volga River region in Russia to America and settled along the Smokey Hill River south 10 miles south of Victoria. They chose that area because it was similar to the wheat-producing region west of the Volga River. They named their parish Holy Cross. Today the beautiful church they built is called “The Cross in the Valley”. It is easy to understand why since they had been through so much: persecution by Russia’s military; the hardship of travel in those days; and starting a new life in a new land. The cross gave them strength and meaning. It does the same for us no matter what our hardships and problems. We too “should glory in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ in whom is our salvation, life, and resurrection, through whom we [too] are saved and delivered” (today’s Entrance Antiphon).                                                                                                                       Grace and Peace, Father Reggie
