CHRIST IS RISEN! INDEED HE IS RISEN!
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"Man sentenced God to death; by His Resurrection, He sentenced man to immortality. In return for a beating, He gives an embrace; for abuse, a blessing; for death, immortality. Man never showed so much hate for God as when he crucified Him; and God never showed more love for man than when He arose. Man even wanted to reduce God to a mortal, but God, by His Resurrection, made man immortal. The crucified God is Risen and has killed death. Death is no more. Immortality has surrounded man and all the world."
