Lift High the Cross

This Sunday was a diocesan wide day of prayer for persecuted Christians in Iraq, Syria, and throughout the Middle East. For the recessional at Church of the Holy Trinity, we sang "Lift High the Cross" (also appropriate, being the Feast of the Holy Cross) and tweaked the usual protocol so as to offer a symbolic expression of solidarity with our suffering brothers and sisters. The little ones of the parish added an additional, unplanned, element.
