" Let all the trees of the forest rejoice..."
Christ planting the trees in the Creation of the world (source)
Let all the trees of the forest rejoice, for Christ, Who planted them in the beginning, has sanctified their nature by being stretched out upon the tree, which we now see exalted, we worship Him and you we magnify.
-From the 9th Ode of the Canon for the Exaltation of the Precious Cross
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
