The Cross and Love

The crucifixion of Christ (source)
 "I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands..."
Isaiah 49:15-16
The Exaltation of the Precious Cross of Christ (source)
"It is not possible to represent and to think of the cross without love. Where the cross is, there is love. In church you see crosses everywhere and on everything, in order that everything should remind you that you are in the temple of the God of love, the temple of love crucified for us."
St. John of Kronstadt
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
