Exaltation of the Holy Cross
Constantine's Dream by Piero della Francesca
Today is the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Wikipedia has an entry on the True Cross here.
In 312, Constantine dreamt of the Holy Cross and saw these words, "In Hoc Signes Vinces". An angel told him to lead his army into battle the next day under the symbol of the Cross. He obeyed and he prevailed.
In no way could it be coincidental that the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI proclaimed that today the Summorum Pontificum would take effect. This historic document gives permission for any priest, any where in Christendom to say the Traditional Latin Mass as long as the Faithful request it. Could it be any more clear that the Holy Father is telling us, "In this way (with this Mass) you will conquer"?
