Apolytikion of the Church of the Resurrection

Thou hast revealed the earthly majesty of the dwelling place of the holy glory, O Lord, as the brilliance of the firmament on high. Make firm its foundation unto ages of ages, and receive our fervent supplications which are offered to thee, there in, through the intercessions of the Theotokos, O life and Resurrection of all.

How Can I Contribute to Holy Resurrection Church?

The Sign of the Cross

Make the sign of the cross regularly to acknowledge the presence of our Lord.
This signifies Christ’s suffering, Crucifixion and Resurrection for our salvation.
This reminds us that we are called to follow in the steps of Christ.
This helps us bear our sorrows and deprivations in His name.
This keeps the image of the cross in front of us.
This helps gain strength against our battle with the devil.
This keeps in mind the glory of Christ in the Second Coming which is preceded by the sign of the Cross in the sky.

We make the sign on our bodies by putting our thumb and first two fingers together symbolizing the Holy Trinity. We tuck the last two in the palm of our hand symbolizing the to natures of Christ: Fully human and and fully divine. Then we start with our forehead moving our hand down to the waist then to the right shoulder and then to the left. some will close the prayer by bringing the hand to the heart. We can say "Glory be to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit" as we make the sign on our Body or some other short prayer.

This is a very simple way to make a prayer anytime during the day. When ever you are feeling distraught stop and make the sign of the cross. Make it before you have your meal. Make it in Church whenever there is reference to the Holy Trinity, Christ, Theotokos or a saint or loved one. Make it any time and it will bring you back to remembrance of God so the Holy Spirit can help you.
