SUNDAY OF THE CROSS

The Week of the Cross marks the middle of Lent. On this Sunday the Church begins special glorification of Christ's Cross and recalls His suffering and the death of the Lord for our salvation. Without the death on the Cross, the Glorious Resurrection is impossible. The worship of the Cross strengthens the spirit of the faithful's journey through Lent and inspires them for the further effort of Lenten deeds.
