Exaltation of the Cross at the antique mall

crucifixI felt bad earlier in the day, not having a post for today’s Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross. But, we are into our second week of school and time for blogging is somewhat scarce. Little did I know that I would find this beautiful crucifix waiting for me this afternoon at my favorite antique mall. It really is lovely, and it was a steal at $12. It now has a new home on our mantel.

We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you

because by your holy cross

you have redeemed the world.

Spread the love

    Oh, it’s beautiful! and such a deal! I love hitting the antique mall. That and bookstores are my favorite kind of shopping. But antiques usually have books, so it fills all my needs! 😉

    This antique mall is at the opposite end of the strip mall where my girls’ dance studio is. Needless to say, they know me in there! Even when I don’t find anything it’s a relaxing excursion just browsing to the classical music.
