Abouna asked me to research this! At our church, we only use the cross during the procession three times around the altar (such as after the Absolution of the Servants, and during Taishori). Other churches, especially those in the North, and in Egypt, use bothe the Bishara and the Cross (sometimes even using 2 deacons to do the procession around the altar together). Which way is right? Our Deacon's committee is actually thinking about changing it, so we need some research done!
Pray for me!
