The Exaltation of the Precious and Life-Giving Cross
Blessed Feast of The Exaltation of the Precious and Life-Giving Cross! “By Thy Cross, Thou didst destroy death! To the thief, Thou didst open Paradise! For the myrrh bearers, Thou didst change weeping into joy! And Thou didst command Thy disciples, O Christ God, to proclaim that Thou art risen, granting the world great mercy!
-Troparion for Sunday
“The Cross is exalted, and everything true gathers together, the Cross is exalted, and the city makes solemn, and the people celebrate the feast”.
– St. Andrew of Crete
