Veneration of the Holy Cross - 03/19/17

The third Sunday of Great Lent marks the Veneration of the Holy Cross. After expressing his gratitude for the St. Nicholas Choir by exclaiming, "What an honor it has been to serve with you," our Very Reverend Father George Veselinovich led the congregation with censing and veneration.

 

 

Mark 8:34-38, 9:1 - And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.  For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?  Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.
