After the prayer of Volop Kocsis, Archbishop of the Diocese of Haidodorog, Karoly Fekete, Bishop of the Reformed Church District of Tizantoli, based his thoughts on a quote from the Bible, in which he said, among other things: “The great meeting point between God and man is the Cross of Christ. Therefore the Cross For us it is not an ornament, not an ornament, but a gospel message, a sign of God's revelation, worship, waiting and openness. A wonderful coordinate system showing the width, length, depth and height of God's love. What people considered bad, God turned into good on the cross. The power of God on the cross was awakened life.”

In the words of Ferenc Palanki, Bishop of the Diocese of Debrecen-Nyiregyhazi: “Since the beginning of Lent, we have already prepared our hearts with repentance and good works. Today we have gathered to experience the mystery of our Lord’s Pascha, that is, His Passion and Resurrection, with the whole Church. He wanted this mystery to be fulfilled when He ascended To his city, Jerusalem. With living faith and the consecration of our hearts, we remember this saving entry. Let us follow in the footsteps of the Lord, so that we, his companions in bearing the cross by His grace, can also be part of his resurrection and eternal life. The Bishop called on those present to pray for peace.

After all this, the heads of the three historic churches jointly blessed the blessings, and then the folk dancers distributed them to those present.
