His Holiness Celebrates the Feast of the Elevation of the Holy Cross
On Sunday September 14, 2014 which is the Feast of the Elevation of the Holy Cross, His Holiness Patriarch Mor Ignatius Aphrem II celebrated the Holy Qurobo (Divine Liturgy) in St. Mary Church in Paramus – New Jersey.

In his sermon, His Holiness explained the meaning of this feast. He also gave a brief overview of the history of the discovery of the Holy Cross by Queen Helen. Moreover, His Holiness emphasized the importance of the Holy Cross in our daily worship and said that it is a symbol of victory and strength for the believers. He, likewise, spoke of the persecutions that the faithful have gone through in different times in history, refusing to deny their faith. He pointed out that the persecutions did not stop and that today Christians are subject to the works of evil in Iraq and Syria, suffering from the crises in the region of the Middle East. His Holiness invited the believers to help their brethren in Syria and Iraq in supporting them with all they can offer so that they continue to be true witnesses of the apostolic faith in the East.

After the homily, His Holiness presided over the special prayer of the Feast of the Elevation of the Holy Cross. He then concluded the Holy Qurobo which was followed by a reception in the church hall.
