The Feast of the Cross
edited December 1969
What are the rites for the feast of the cross tomorrow, such as the tune and procession and such.
They are the same as the feast of the cross that follows right after Nayrouz. Tune is sha3neeni, procession is same as palm sunday but with different refrain, Tishori will be said as it overrides the day of lent. After Tishori, fai etafenf follows then hitens. Praxis response of the day and gospel/psalm response for the day as well. If you have time you can say the psalm in the singari tune. psalm 150 is sha3neeni with the appropriate response. As mentioned before, the rites are exactly the same as the feast of the cross right after nayrouz. Only difference is its only celebrated over one day instead of 3.
