Next Three Weeks (20 Dec-10 Jan)

Exaltation of Cross Kontakion of the Cross, ToneĀ 4
O Christ our God, you willingly accepted to be lifted on the Cross,
Giving your mercies to the new nation named after you;
Giving joy to Orthodox faithful.
And with your power you gave them victory over enemies.
~ May they have as an ally your Cross the invincible trophy,
the weapon of peace.
