Lenten Sunday of the Cross

Sunday, April 07, 2013

“Come, ye faithful, let us adore the life-giving wood

on which Christ the King of glory stretched out His hands of His own will.”

 

On the Third Lord’s Day of the Great Fast, the mid-point of our Paschal pilgrimage known as the Sunday of the Adoration of the Precious Cross, we bless and greet the Christ-loving and Reverend Clergy, Venerable Monastics, and Devout Faithful of the Holy Orthodox Churches in North and Central America, praying that we all may “be enabled to fight the good fight, to complete the course of the Fast, to preserve inviolate the Faith, to crush underfoot the heads of invisible serpents, to be accounted victors over sin, and, uncondemned, to attain unto and worship the Holy Resurrection.”  With prayers that you may have a soul-profiting remainder of the Fast, we remain

In Christ,

The Members of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America
