The Great Synaxaristes of the Orthodox Church: August

   
Translated from the Greek

A volume of The Great Synaxaristes of the Orthodox Church

“The Feast of the Procession of the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ was introduced on the previous day, the 31st day of the month of July. With gladsome hearts, we keep festival at the glorious procession of the Cross that has illumined our souls and hallowed our bodies by the grace of Christ voluntarily nailed on it and lifted up in the midst of the earth to save our race and unite it with the hosts on high. Today, for the Russian Feast of the Savior and the Theotokos, we chant that which was spoken of by Moses: ‘Ye shall see your life hanging before your eyes.’”
—“On the 1st of August, the holy Church commemorates the Procession of the precious and life-giving CROSS of our Lord.”
