The Blessed Feast of The Holy Cross

September 27-29, 2020

Coptic Cross

Jesus said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.

(Luke 9:23-24)

The church celebrates the appearance of the Honorable Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ on September 27-29, 2020. This was revealed by the lover of God, Queen Helena, mother of Emperor Constantine, from under the pile of Golgotha, after she ordered its removal. As to the reason for how this great pile of dirt came into being, it was thus: the Jewish leaders when they saw all the signs and wonders which were made manifest from the sepulcher of our Savior, such as raising the dead and healing the sick, became angry, and they sent forth throughout Judea and Jerusalem ordering all the people to cast the sweepings of their houses and the dirt over the sepulcher of Jesus of Nazareth. And they continued to do so for more than two hundred years, until it became a very great heap.

The Coptic Orthodox Church Celebrates the Feast of the Holy Cross every year on March 19 and September 27-29. Wishing all of you a blessed Feast.
