“Come together as a family of faith and offer thanksgiving to God that our Lord willingly gave Himself to be crucified upon the Cross so that we might have life. Make the sign of the Cross as a family before you eat and allow yourselves to always look to the Cross of Christ as your symbol of hope. Let us all look towards the example of Christ and His Cross for how we are to confront the difficulties of our life, knowing that with the help of Christ and His Cross we can overcome all adversity.”
(Metropolitan Evangelos of New Jersey)
