EXALTATION OF THE HOLY CROSS Troparion O LORD, save thy people, and bless thine inheritance. Grant victories to the Orthodox Christians over their adversaries, and by the virtue of thy Cross preserve thy habitation. Kontakion O THOU Who wast lifted up willingly on the Cross, bestow Thy mercies upon the new community named after Thee, O Christ God; gladden with Thy power the Orthodox Christians, granting them victory over enemies; may they have as Thy help the weapon of peace, the invincible trophy. On September 14 Orthodox Christians celebrate three events related to different periods of time. The first of these events was discovering in 326 AD of the Cross on which Jesus Christ had been crucified. The miraculous discovery was made by Empress Helen (mother of Constantine, the Emperor of Byzantine) and by Macarius, the Patriarch of Jerusalem. The second event was the erection of the Church of Lord's Resurrection and installing the Holy Cross of our Lord in it (the date of this holiday was established then). The third event was the return of the Holy Cross from Persia where it had been moved after conquering Jerusalem, and where it had been in imprisonment for 14 years. St. Paraskeva the New (Petka) Troparion - Tone 4 You chose a silent and solitary life; you followed Christ your Bridegroom. You Read More
