Veneration of the Holy Cross

On the third Sunday of the Great Fast we venerate the Holy Cross. It is a feast in the middle of the fast, for like the banner of an approaching victorious king, the Holy Cross announces the coming Resurrection.

“Before your Cross we bow down in worship, O Master, and your Holy Resurrection we glorify. ”
