Church Father Quote of the Day

 

Thus when the Lord was carrying the wood of the Cross–wood that he later turned into a scepter of power–it seemed greatly degrading to the eyes of unbelievers, but it appeared as a wonderful mystery to believers, because the glorious victor over the devil and conqueror of the forces of hell was carrying the beautifully symbolic trophy of this triumph.
