Exultation of the Holy Cross [Sept. XIV]

World Trade Center Cross

This Cross, now relocated at Saint Peter's church, just yards from the site of the former World Trade Center, was discovered on September 13, 2001 (Vigil of the Holy Cross) standing among the rubble at Ground Zero. It has become, for the many of the rescue volunteers and to the population of the New York Metropolis, a powerful symbol of the presence of God in the midst of the horror; death, and destruction visited upon the people of New York on the morning of September 11, 2001.
