Today, on this 5th and last Sunday of Great Lent, our Church has chosen these particular Holy Readings to prepare us spiritually for the great event that is to come:  Our Lord’s Sacrifice on the Cross.

In today’s reading from the Apostle Paul’s Letter to the Hebrews, we are urged to be firm in our belief that God’s promises will not be broken.

Today, on this Sunday of the Veneration of the Holy Cross, the Church presents to us the Holy Cross of the Lord so that we may venerate it, gain strength, and continue the spiritual struggle until Pascha and beyond.

At the beginning of his Epistle to the Hebrews, which we heard today, St. Paul urges us to reap the fruit of salvation that Christ offers to us.

The meaning of today's great Feast of Orthodoxy is summarized in a hymn sung the Matins, at the Praises
