Catholic Church celebrates on September 14 the feast of the Exaltation of the Cross of Christ, the glorious Cross, place of the Christ's victory.
In honour of this feast the parishioners of Medjugorje on March 15, 1934, raised a concrete cross 8.56 m high, built in remembrance of the 1900 anniversary of the Christ's death on the Cross. On the cross it is written: “To Jesus Christ, Redeemer of the human race, as a sign of their faith, love and hope, in remembrance of the 1900 anniversary of Passion of Christ”.
Relics received from Rome for the occasion are embedded in the cross bar itself.
Since then, the custom of celebrating Holy Mass at the foot of the cross in commemoration of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross was established. It is always celebrated on the 1st Sunday after the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
According to the visionaries, in the message of August 30, 1984. Our Lady said : “The cross was also in God's plan when you built it.”

Pilgrimage on the mount Križevac on that day gives the experience of Christian fellowship in a special way. Because reflecting the passion, we inevitably reflect on our crosses what helps us to accept them with love and faith and enables us to be aware of the crosses of the other people. Way of the Cross ends with the celebration of a solemn Mass on the mountain Križevac, where our joint prayers are immersed into the mystery of the Eucharist with the confidence that merciful Jesus will hear them.
As in previous years the wards of the Holy Family Institute along with their educators went on a pilgrimage for the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on September 9 2012. After Holy Mass the gathering in song and prayer was continued at the house of our dear friends Nancy and Patrick Latta.
When the wards returned home they were thrilled by what they saw and experienced:

“Medjugorje is a sacred place for me where I feel the presence of the Holy Spirit. Therefore I always come gladly, sure that I will find there the necessary strength for the obligations that await me.”
(Ivana Karaula)

“Climbing to the cross I was filled with great joy and sense of fulfilment. In moments of fatigue I begged Jesus to help me to continue. Picture of the Križevac mountain is a picture of life – with the help of Jesus and Mary everything can be endured.”
(Nikolina Prskalo)

“Medjugorje holds a special place in my heart. Every time I experience it differently. I suppose it is because I am changing as well as my reflections on faith and life.
Medjugorje gathers whole world in prayer and shows that only prayer can unite the people and bring them to one another.
(Marija Paurević)
