My uncle (Fr. Paul) has been awarded with "cross with ornaments" on lenten Synod session. Not sure what that means but prayers highly appreciated.

It sounds like a great honor!

Many years to him, and may the Lord always keep him in His care.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Glory to God.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

In Slavic tradition, a priest receives a silver cross at ordination. With time, and after duly good service, he could receive further rises in rank, first with a gold cross, then a jeweled cross. The highest honor AFAIK a married priest can receive is to wear a mitre. Rare, but it happens.
