The Exaltation of the Holy Cross, based on John 3:13-17

Jesus said to Nicodemus: “No one has ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.

  “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.

  “Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. ”

About Magdalen Coughlin, O.P.

I am a Dominican Nun, a native Canadian and member of the Squamish British Columbia community, a new foundation in Western Canada, We are establishing a monastic community here in the Canadian wilderness. We welcome visitors and retreatants who come to this place, sometimes purposefully, sometimes blindly, in search of silence, rest, healing, and often, for meaning in the chaos of life. It is of course the God of Love who draws them, and it is our privilege to be here for them.
