Church Father Quote of the Day

 

Here is their grave and our recompense; the shame of the impious, and our title of glory; a wound for them, and life for us; it si that the Lord is truly risen. The tomb guards could have been given money to keep quiet, yes, but the stones shout it even louder: “A stone on the mountain removed without the aid of human hands, lifted away from the tomb like a child from his mother’s breast, the Lord is risen!

Romanos the Melodist
