Воздвиження 2020 - яке свято 27 вересня - історія - традиції

Dear colleagues!

Congratulations with the Exaltation of the Holy Cross!
According to legend, in 326 the mother of Emperor Constantine Helen went to Jerusalem in search of Christian shrines (we can say that the queen became the founder of biblical archeology). Then the Cross was found, as well as the Tomb of the Lord (the cave where Christ was buried and rose on the third day).
Excavations were carried out at Calvary, where Christ was crucified. Three crosses, several nails and a plaque with the inscription “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews” were found underground. However, the board lay apart and it was impossible to understand which of the three crosses was the Lord’s. According to legend, crosses were alternately applied to the patient, and after touching the same Cross, he was healed. According to another legend, from the touch to this cross the dead man was resurrected, who was carried down the street for burial (hence the name allegedly life-giving).
May this solemn holiday bring us good, spiritual improvement, transforming our lives for the better, inspiring us with creative work, bringing us closer to high Christian ideals.
May the All-Merciful Lord God grant us peace and tranquility in our native land, protect us from the troubles of life, help us to realize bright plans and inspire all of you to good deeds for the benefit and well-being of our families and all of Ukraine!
Health, happiness and well-being to you and your loved ones.
