from the Stauros Text

The Cross is the hope of the Christians.

The Cross is the resurrection of the dead …

The Cross is the physician of the sick …

The Cross is the hope of the hopeless …

The Cross is the freedom of slaves …

The Cross is the splendour of kings …

The Cross is the exultation of the apostles …

The Cross is the haven of the storm-tossed …

The Cross is the forgiveness of sinners …

The Cross is the hope of the forlorn …

The Cross is the watering of seeds …

The Cross is the welfare of the poor …

The Cross is the victory over the devil …

The Cross is the clothing of the naked …

The Cross is the praise of the angels …

The Cross is the bread for the hungry …

The Cross is the spring for the thirsty …

The Cross is the foundation of churches …

The Cross is life-giving, on account of God, who hung upon it in the flesh, because he conquered for us, who need peace.

“The Cross Has Won.
It Always Wins!”

(Christian Inscription in the Temple of Philae)
