GREAT AND HOLY FRIDAY
Q What should one feel while advancing with the Lord toward the sorrows of His ineffable Passion?
A The love of God! (From conversations with Elder Pavlos)
'You put on a crown of insult, you who painted the earth in flowers, and were mocked when you donned the mantle, you who clothe the world in clouds. By such dispensation Your compassion was made known, O Christ, the great mercy, glory to You!'
'You worked salvation in the midst of the earth, O Christ our God. You stretched out your immaculate hands on the Cross, and gathered all nations, who cry to you: "Lord, glory to You!"'
