'The most excellent of God's acts...'


Dear Parish Faithful,
 
GREAT LENT - The Sixteenth Day
 
"When the Lord became man, the most excellent of God's acts was completed indeed. For although every prior act that God providentially accomplished on our behalf was fine and good, and straining towards this end, the most excellent act of all, or rather the only one that is excellent beyond compare, is the act of our Lord Jesus Christ becoming man, an act whose end was the saving Passion and Resurrection."
 
- St. Gregory Palamas (+1359)
