Young & Divine => The Holy Cross entrance to Britain for a initial time

The Holy Cross of Jesus Christ
will come to Britain in between a 28.11.2013 until a 12.12.2013. Archbishop
Gregorios, of Thyateira as well as Great Britain wrote a next Encyclical, in order
to surprise a loyal of this great event. It is a requisite to advertise
this as well as to commend this Holy Relic of a Church, in sequence to embrace its
blessing.

To the
Reverend Priests as well as Deacons, Honourable Chairpersons as well as Members of the
Executive Committees, as well as to all a Christian people of a Sacred Archdiocese
of Thyateira as well as Great Britain.
Dearly Beloved in a Lord,
I take great complacency in informing you
of a little smashing news. Following a ask of a holy Archdiocese, as well as that
of a Russian Orthodox Church in Britain, His Beatitude a Patriarch of
Jerusalem, Theophilos, as well as a Synod of a Holy Sepulchre, have concluded to
bless a revisit of a Precious as well as Life-giving Cross to a United Kingdom for
our people to venerate.
Attached
you will find a programme for a Holy Cross’ revisit to a churches.
I invite
all Orthodox Christians to come to church to commend a Cross, to be blessed
and edified by it, as well as to find by a beauty of a Precious and
Life-giving Cross health, happiness, redemption as well as discount of sins, the
guidance as well as insurance of their children, a strengthening of their family,
and eternal note of immature as well as old.
Needless-to-say
this vestige is a square of a Cross on that a Lord Jesus Christ was
crucified on Golgotha as well as on that He strew His many holy Blood for the
salvation of a tellurian race. Rightly does a hymnographer sing:
“Rejoice, O life-bearing Cross, godlike triumph
of loyal worship; O embankment of paradise, being continuous of believers, as well as wall of the
Church, by which… we have ascended from earth to heaven.”
With
profound theological poetry, a Church invites a people of God to venerate
and urge prior to a Precious as well as Life-giving Cross:
“Come, all ye nations, let us venerate a blessed
Tree, by that secure probity hath come to pass… And by a red blood of
God a venom of a snake was cleared away; as well as a abuse was dismantled by the
righteous judgment when a only One was cursed unjustly… But excellence to Thy
fearful management towards us, O Christ, wherewith Thou hast saved all, since
Thou art great as well as a partner of mankind.”
With
great complacency we design to see we come to a churches with friendship as well as holy
humility to urge as well as crawl down prior to a Holy Cross, that will be here in the
United Kingdom for a initial time to magnify a churches, their leaders and
congregations, as well as all who come with conviction as well as a enterprise to find redemption
and a shelter of their souls from Him who was crucified as well as suffered for
us, a Lord Jesus Christ. To Him be dominion, excellence as well as eternal forgiveness for
ever as well as ever. Amen.
