    Teachings of Christ

    “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul?" (Mark 8:34-37 ESV)

    Exaltation of the Cross

    Save Your people, O Lord, and bless Your inheritance; * grant victory to Your Church over her enemies * and protect Your commonwealth by Your Cross. (Troparion - Tone 1)

    Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

    Willingly lifted up on the Cross, O Christ God, * bestow Your compassions upon the new commonwealth that bears Your name. * By your power grant joy to Your Church, * granting her victory over her enemies. * May she have your Cross as the weapon of peace * and the invincible ensign of victory. (Kontakion - Tone 4)

    The Church celebrates the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross on September 14th.

    Random Proverb

    "Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding, for the gain from her is better than gain from silver and her profit better than gold." (Proverbs 3:13,14 ESV)

    Pray Without Ceasing

    Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

    Wisdom from the Church Fathers

    BROTHER: What is purity of soul?

    OLD MAN: Remoteness from anger and from the error of the remembrance of evil things, and being weaned from the bitter nature, and reconciliation with our enemies, and peace which is beyond troubling, and simplicity of love which is above this world; with these things is the inner man cleansed, and he puts on Christ and is redeemed.

    E. A. Wallis Budge, "The Paradise of the Holy Fathers"
