SUNDAY OF THE VENERATION OF THE HOLY CROSS. With God's Grace, we have reached the middle of the course of the Lenten journey. Our Holy Church of Christ, now brings to our help the All-Holy Cross, the joy of the world, the strength of the faithful, the staff of the just, and the hope of sinners, so that by venerating it reverently, we might receive strength and grace to complete the divine struggle of the Fast. Today's Gospel reading invites Christians to embrace their individual Cross, knowing that the Cross leads to Christ's Resurrection.
SUNDAY OF ORTHODOXY
On the First Sunday of Great Lent is known as the Sunday of Orthodoxy. On this day, our Holy Church commemorates the restoration of Holy Icons after centuries of controversy and suffering at the hands of the iconoclasts; those who destroyed icons. Icons convey a deep theological truth as they witness to Christ's incarnation. Fr.Peter Mavrommatis.
