Perhaps this question belongs in a different forum, but here goes:
I use the Christian Prayer version of the Liturgy of the Hours, to my understanding it has everything that the 4 book office has, just a lot more page flipping. In any event, this morning’s Antiphon for accompaning the Canticle of Zechariah is as follows:
"We worship your cross, O Lord, and we praise and glorify your holy resurrection, for the wood of the cross has brought joy to the world."
Now today is The Exaltation of The Holy Cross, but to worship it? What am I missing here, because I know that my Catholic Faith, a Faith whose martyrs’ blood was shed defending against heresy and idolatry, would not be asking me to worship a cross, or even the Cross, or an altar or anything/anyone besides the Triune God?
(for those who have the 1600 pg volume, it is on pg 1255)
