The Cross Makes All Things New

The Cross Makes All Things New

During this festival of the Holy Cross, Fr John Brian emphasized the last verses of the opening hymn from the Ma'de'dono (Book of the Church Festivals) in his sermon:

+ + +
By Your Cross everything was made new;
By Your Cross everything was reconciled;
By Your Cross everything was confirmed;
By Your Cross everything was made perfect.

+ + +
Glory to You, O worshipped Son,
Praise be to Your invisible Father,
Thanksgiving to the Holy Spirit.
May Mercy and compassion be upon us
+ + +

This sermon lesson uses the readings and services appointed from the Malankara Syrian lectionary and was given on Sunday, September 19, 2010 by Fr. John Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox
