Exaltation of the Cross

September 18, 2022
Sunday After the Feast of the Universal Exaltation of the Precious and Life-Giving 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)

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)

The Icon is of the The Universal Exaltation of the Precious and Life-Giving Cross (September 14th).
