By the cross all these things have been set aright...


By the cross all these things have been set aright...

It is a seal that the destroyer may not strike us, 
a raising up of those who lie fallen, 
a support for those who stand, 
a staff for the infirm, 
a crook for the shepherded, 
a guide for the wandering, 
a perfecting of the advanced, 
salvation for soul and body, 
a deflector of all evils, 
a cause of all goods, 
a destruction of sin, 
a plant of resurrection, 
and a tree of eternal life.

[excerpted from Orthodox Faith 4]
