September 14th is celebrated as the Feast of the Holy Cross or Exaltation of the Cross (or Triumph of the Cross). On this feast we honour the Holy Cross by which Christ redeemed the world. The miraculous discovery of the cross on September 14, 326, by Saint Helen, mother of Constantine, while she was on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, is the origin of the tradition of celebrating the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross on this date. Constantine later built the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on the site of her discovery of the cross.
