XXXX Sunday after the Great Feast of Pentecost and Sunday of the XXXX Week after the Great Feast of the of the Exaltation of the Precious and Lifegiving Holy Cross (XXXX Sunday of the Holy Cross)

Every Sunday following the Sunday after the Great Feast of Exaltation of the Precious and Lifegiving Holy Cross is both a Sunday after Pentecost and a Sunday of the Holy Cross until The Tridoion.

Some theologians think the Pentecost Cycle and Holy Cross Cycle ends on the day before the First Sunday of the Tridoion: Sunday of the Pharisee and the Publican. Other theologians think that this period ends on the day before the First All Souls Saturday. The First All Souls Saturday is the day before the Third Sunday of the Triodion: Sunday of Meat fare.

O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
