“The Panachida is a memorial service for the dead, that provides an opportunity to pray for the soul of the one who has died, asking God to grant them rest and forgiveness of all their sins, and also serves to comfort and console those left behind. The name comes from the Greek pannychis, meaning an all-night vigil. For guidelines on leading the singing of this service, see Singing the Panachida. “(This information is from THE METROPOLITAN CANTOR INSTITUTE).

The Gospel today is Mark 8: 34 – 9:1, Take Up the Cross and Follow Him and which Mark’s message is clear …… “The Lord said, If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.” This is a difficult path to follow, but by following Him, He will always be with you and help you, for one day you will be with Him in Heaven.

On the Third Sunday of Great and Holy Fast, the Church commemorates the Precious and Life-Giving Cross of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The liturgy includes a special veneration of the Cross, which prepares us for the commemoration of the Crucifixion during Holy Week. We are reminded about the suffering and death of our Lord, and thus, are inspired and strengthened for the remainder of the of the fast. The Holy Cross remains out for veneration throughout the week until Friday, when, before the beginning of the Presanctfied Liturgy, it is returned to the Altar.
