” Ὁ Σταυρός εἶναι ἐλπίς τῶν Χριστιανῶν, σωτήρ τῶν ἀπεγνωσμένων, λιμάνι γι᾽ αὐτούς πού εὑρίσκονται σέ δύσκολες βιωτικές περιστάσεις, ἰατρός γιά τούς ἀσθενεῖς· ἀπομακρύνει τά πάθη, δίδει τήν ὑγεία, δίδει τήν ζωή στούς πνευματικά νεκρούς, καθοδηγεῖ πρός τήν εὐσέβεια, ἀποστομώνει τήν βλασφημία.” Ανδρέου, Αρχιεπισκόπου Κρήτης
