Today the grace of the Holy Spirit has gathered us together,
and we all take up Thy Cross and say:
Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord;
Hosanna in the highest.
— Sticheron for Palm Sunday
May we be gathered to take up the Cross of Christ together
and bear it together to his Bright Resurrection.
For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself.
For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord.
So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.
— Romans 14:7–8
