TRANSLATION FROM THE SLAVONIC ON THE VERSO OF THE CROSS
From the Feast of the Holy Cross
"Before Thy Cross we fall down in worship O Master and The Holy Resurrection we glorify."
From Pascha Matins
"Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered, and let them that hate Him flee from His face. As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish. As wax melts before the fire, so sinners will perish before the face of God. But let the righteous be glad and wondrous is the sign of the Cross. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. The pure and living Cross of the Lord gives strength to you. Our pure Lord Jesus Christ
descended into Hell and destroyed the power of Satan and gave us Your Cross to destroy all evil. O pure and loving Cross of the Lord help me with your power and with all the saints to conquer all evil forever."
From Vespers of Third Sunday of Lent
"Rejoice, O life bearing Cross, the unconquerable triumph of true worship, O door of paradise, the confirmation of believers, the wall of the Church, through which corruption has disappeared and perished, and the power of death was swallowed, and we ascend from earth to heaven, thou incontestable weapon and adversary of Satan; for thou art the glory of Martyrs and their adornment in truth, the haven of salvation that grants to the world Great Mercy."
