March 27, 2011 Length: 15:28
On the Third Sunday of the Great Fast, the Church places the precious cross of our Lord in the midst of the temple for our veneration and contemplation. Fr Tom reminds us that the scriptures present the cross as a sign both of comfort and of judgment, encouraging us to fulfill the Lenten effort to take up our cross and follow Christ. (Veneration of the Precious Cross)
"I can't imagine life without AFR. Though I am not Orthodox, I have a love for the ancient Church, and AFR is my window to it. Thank you for being a daily blessing to me."
