The Quill of the Cross

image

When asked what the Cross means I can’t think of a more beautiful way if putting it then this from the Sticheron for the Veneration of the Holy Cross:

“Burning with boundless love for man, 
You took the quill of the Cross in your hand,
dipping it in ink of royal crimson,
You signed our release with bloodstained fingers.”
