Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Cyril in a sermon on the occasion of the upcoming feast of the exaltation of the precious and life-giving cross of the Lord called the faithful to take from the Saviour it is an example worthy to endure tribulation and suffering in life.

«Everyone goes through suffering, to a greater or lesser extent. Sometimes through great sorrow are people, sometimes less, but there is no person who would not have suffered, something once hurt have hurt… And it so happens that man is destroying himself from this suffering, goes through difficult moments in their lives and leaves them destroyed, weakened, angry, sometimes even lost all hope for the future,» the Patriarch said after the vigil at the Cathedral of St. Nicholas in Yeysk.

The Primate of the Russian Church noted that «the Cross of Christ and the Holy Golgotha, the place of redemption for all of us and the place of suffering, taught the proper attitude to sorrows».

«And when it is very difficult in life when it seems that there are no forces to bear all that fell on your head, go to the Cross and look closely at this image. Correlate the flour and the innocent Savior with their everyday tribulations. And pray to the Lord before His cross, that He gave you strength to overcome sorrow, sickness and suffering without destroying themselves either spiritually or physically, but to get out of this band the difficulties of life with new forces, with a new Outlook on life, with a new state of mind – state of a winner, worthy of having passed through the trials,» — said the Patriarch.

According to him, it is well known that there is no human development without difficulties, without different difficult situations which are «inseparable, indivisible part» of human life. «And in order that we, Christians, believers in the Lord, recognizing the power of His cross and Resurrection, could be strong in all circumstances of life, we must learn from the Lord Jesus Christ, looking to His cross, great power saving and the ability to overcome their own grief,» said the Primate.

«How God loves his creation, His only begotten Son, to atone for the mess of human sin, human outrage, goes back to the cross and accepts this shameful death,» he added.
