The Holy Cross was found by Saint Helen in Jerusalem, as she was led to it by an aromatic plant that was rising in that place, our well-known basil. The Rise of the Holy Cross symbolizes the rise of the mankind that has fallen from the Paradise and the victory of Jesus Christ against the evil. Holy Cross is the carrier of the divine grace and the symbol of the spiritual struggle.
