Veneration of the Cross


Third Sunday of the Great Fast, on which we celebrate The Adoration of the Precious and Life-giving Cross.
When venerating the cross this week, we sing thrice with prostrations:

Krestu Tvoyemu poklanyayemsya Vladiko,i svyatoye voskreseniye Tvoye slavim (thrice).

We venerate Thy Cross, O Master; and we glorify Thy holy Resurrection (thrice).
