Christ is Risen!
As the Sunday of the Cross marks the halfway point to our celebration of Pascha, I thought this quote from St. Chrysostom was wonderful. It is by His mercy that we will be saved, mercy He offers us so that we might someday reach the summit of virtue.
We’re halfway there, folks, let’s not become fainthearted! The cross reminds us that through trial comes joy, the joy of the Resurrection. Just a little while longer and our “mourning” will be turned into joy when we chant together, “Christ is risen from the dead!”
