A piece of the Precious Cross of Our Lord is to visit the 'Joy of All Who Sorrow' Holy Virgin Cathedral this Saturday and Sunday.

A relic cross with a piece of the Precious Cross of Christ, stained with a drop of the Saviors Blood, will be brought to the Cathedral at 9am this Saturday, December 1. It will remain at the Cathedral through the Vigil that day and will return for the  liturgies the following day, Sunday, December 2.

The relic cross came from Patriarch Diodoros of Jerusalem. The current guardian the cross blessed a sick person at a hospital in Athens and the patient got well the next day. Since then this relic has blessed thousands of people in many countries. In the last several years, hundreds of people were healed from various illnesses, including cancer and infertility. Miraculous healings from various illnesses have been documented. The cross gives off a sweet scent and at times streams myrrh.
