Thirty-fifth Day of Lent: Reflections of the Cross

The Serbian Cross

The Serbian Cross is a national symbol of Serbia, part of the Coat of Arms of Serbia, and the flag of Serbia. It is composed of a cross symbol with four stylized letters beta (Β) on each of its corners. The actual origin of the beta (Β) symbols goes back to the Byzantine Empire, most often attributed to the motto of the Palaiologoi Dynasty: King of Kings, Ruling Over Kings (Greek: βασιλεύς βασιλέων, βασιλεύων βασιλευόντων).

“…for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.” (Revelation 17:14)

Prayer:
You are Lord, and we need no other.
You are King, and there is no other.
You have called and now we have answered. Lord and King, find us faithful as we serve You on earth, just as we pray that it be so in heaven.
Amen.
