Christ Is Risen! Truly He Is Risen!
"Eyes show different colors and the sun of the spirit may shine in different
ways in the soul. There is the way of bodily tears and there is the way of
the tears of the soul. There is the way of the contemplation of what is
before us and the way of the contemplation of what remains unseen. There is
the way of things heard at second hand and the way of spontaneous joy within
the soul. There is the way of stillness and the way of obedience. And in
addition to these there is the way of rapture, the way of the mind
mysteriously and marvelously carried into the light of Christ."
St. John Climacus.
"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves
