The Holy And Life-Giving Cross

“I confess the Cross, because I know of the Resurrection”.
St. Kyrillos of Jerusalem.

There are many tradition through the world, where they use the Cross in Wrong meaning, for example in Swedish tradition, in the Midsummer, they rise the cross, dancing, and singing a popular songs, forgetting the meaning of the cross,
Therefore, I would to remind them, that the Cross is the Path to the Resurrection

The cross is the victory of All Christian believers

so we are chanting the “Troparia” to the Holy And Life-Giving Cross

O Lord, save Your people,
And bless Your inheritance.
Grant victories to the Orthodox Christians
Over their adversaries.
And by virtue of Your Cross,
Preserve Your habitation.
