Our Double Atitude Towards Death
Dear Parish Faithful and Friends in Christ,
Christ is Risen!
A Paschal Meditation:
"The Son of God, the Redeemer and Savior, absolutely sinless and holy, had to accept death, and thereby He sanctified death. Hence the double attitude of Christianity to death. Christ has destroyed death by His death. His voluntary death ... is a blessing and supreme value.... Through the cross death is transfigured and leads us to resurrection and to life. The whole of this world must be made to pass through death and crucifixion, else it cannot attain to resurrection and eternity." (The Destiny of Man, Nicholas Berdyaev)
