Live Stream: Live TV program for finding of true cross from Choma, Mekelle.
The Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Saint Helena, the mother of Constantine, made it her mission to search all of Jerusalem to find the True Cross that Our Lord was crucified on.
Tradition held that the crosses were buried underneath the Temple of Aphrodite. St. Helena ordered that the Temple to Aphrodite be razed to the ground. During this excavation, the three crosses were found.
In order to determine which one was the True Cross of Christ, the crosses were taken to a woman on her death-bed. When she touched the True Cross of Christ, she was instantly healed. The Cross was then made an object of veneration for all people.
