Then the tomb is opened with prayers and the entombed cross is taken out and the wrappings around the cross is removed. The cross is adorned with a red stole and a red silk velvet veil over it. The cross is then placed over its stand (Mnortho) in between two lighted candles. While still the sanctuary is closed, the celebrant conducts tomb opening prayers in very low voice. During the time the congregation sings Halleluiah. After the supplication, the celebrant carries the cross and comes to the door of the sanctuary as the sanctuary is now opened.
