Archimandrite George Kapsanis:
Christ’s Cross and Its Meaning In Our Lives
The Honorable Cross as Symbol of and Sign of Christ
The honorable cross is the most holy sign and symbol of our faith. All the holy mysteries anre ended with the calling of the Holy Spirit and the seal of the cross: baptism, chrismation and Divine Eucharist. All the priest’s blessing are with the sign of the cross. The sacred temples, sacred items and vestments are sanctified with the honourable cross. No liturgical act or gathering is imaginable without the cross. The cross is also the most faithful friend to every Orthodox Christian, from the moment we are born until the day we die. The grave of every Christian is marked with a cross.
