Something to Think About...
"O Death, where is your sting? O Hell, where is your victory?
Christ is risen, and you are overthrown! Christ is
risen, and the demons are fallen! Christ is risen, and the
angels rejoice! Christ is risen, and life reigns! Christ is
risen, and not one dead remains in the grave! For Christ,
being risen from the dead, is become the first fruits of
those who have fallen asleep. To Him be glory and dominion
unto ages of ages!"
-From the Catechetical Homily of St. John Chrysostom, given at the
end of Paschal Matins, and prefacing the Paschal Divine Liturgy
