The 37th Day - In Reverse Order

Dear Parish Faithful,

GREAT LENT: The Thirty Seventh Day

"The return of humanity to the house of the Father, the ascent after the condescension, will occur in reverse order: death will be vanquished by the death of Christ and its sting pulled out; sin will be destroyed in its very roots, in the heart of man, by one Man who had not known sin; and humanity will be reconciled, filled with the divine Spirit, by the one who recapitulates in Himself all humans."

- From "The Lamb of God Takes Upon Himself Human Suffering," by Boris Bobrinskoy
