So many Feasts in the Ecclesiastical Year.
At first the Finding, March 6, then the Inauguration of the All-holy Church of the Resurrection, September 13, A.D. 335, and then the Exaltation of the Holy and Life-Giving Cross, September 14!
More than just a few times a day we do the sign of the Cross upon ourselves, our children, our car, our home, but how often do we think of Holy Queen Helen and her unique role in the recovering of the Holy and Life-giving Cross. This Paterikon, #39, tells exactly how she managed!
Holy Queen Helen, intercede for us.
Holy and Life-Giving Cross of Christ, save us through your power.
