HOLY CROSS DAY

Holy Cross Day became a feast of the Episcopal Church’s Book of Common Prayer in 1979, but the observance began in Jerusalem on September 14, 335 when the first Christian Roman Emperor, Constantine, built Churches to enshrine the traditional sites of Jesus’ crucifixion, burial and resurrection. Excavations at the time discovered a relic, believed to be that of the true cross. Much of our cherished Holy Week liturgies stems from that period, spreading around Christendom through the ages. The crucifix near the pulpit, our 9/11 memorial, is mounted on a cross of stones which were from the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

Saint Thomas Church was founded to set forth, through preaching and teaching, through architecture, liturgy and music, through fellowship and service, the glory of the Cross of Christ. On the top of the Fifth Avenue façade is a crucifix, with the words, “Thou art the King of Glory, O Christ.” And so it is that this Church is a place where many souls are drawn to the foot of the Cross: this deepest mystery, and clearest manifestation, of God’s everlasting love.

Collect:

Almighty God, whose Son our Savior Jesus Christ was lifted high upon the cross that he might draw the whole world unto himself: Mercifully grant that we, who glory in the mystery of our redemption, may have grace to take up our cross and follow him; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

Grant us, O Lord, not to mind earthly things, but to love things heavenly; and even now, while we are placed among things that are passing away, to cleave to those that shall abide; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. (Proper 20)

SAINT MICHAEL AND ALL ANGELS

Collect:

O everlasting God, who hast ordained and constituted the ministries of angels and men in a wonderful order: Mercifully grant that, as thy holy angels always serve and worship thee in heaven, so by thy appointment they may help and defend us on earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
