MOSCOW, September 27 (Itar-Tass) – Russian Orthodox Church venerates the Holy Cross, the main symbol of Christianity, on Tuesday, September 27.
On the feast known as the Day of Exaltation of the Cross, crosses are taken out of the altars and placed on lecterns in the center of each church. Believers make down-to-earth bows to show reverence to them.
The feast of Exaltation of vfthe Cross is accompanied by strict fasting to remember Jesus’s suffering after crucifying.
The feast emerged in the 4th century AD and is linked to the finding of the genuine Cross in 326. Its genuineness was proved by the curing of an already dead person.
Another two crosses that were found on the Golgotha simultaneously with it did not produce an effect of this kind.
Tuesday, the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill I will lead a festive liturgy in a remarkable Moscow church dedicated to St Marin the Confessor, the Pope of Rome. Its main alter is dedicated to Exaltation of the Cross.
The impressive church building designed by architect Rodion Kazakov in the first half of the 19th century. It resembles in some way the St Paul’s Cathedral in London. Its domes rise high enough over the landscape and other buildings of the Taganka district.
Members of highly acclaimed merchant families made up the St Martin’s parish in the past.
The church building survived the repressions of the atheistic state from the 1920’s through to the middle of the 1980’s but it was used as a production facility of a movie studio and a depositary for books.
