      CHRIST IS BORN! GLORIFY HIM! He, the Life of all, our Lord and Saviour, did not arrange the manner of his own death lest He should seem to be afraid of some

        CHRIST IS BORN! GLORIFY HIM!

        "He, the Life of all, our Lord and Saviour, did not arrange the manner of his own death lest He should seem to be afraid of some other kind. No. He accepted and bore upon the cross a death inflicted by others, and those other His special enemies, a death which to them was supremely terrible and by no means to be faced; and He did this in order that, by destroying even this death, He might Himself be believed to be the Life, and the power of death be recognised as finally annulled. A marvellous and mighty paradox has thus occurred, for the death which they thought to inflict on Him as dishonour and disgrace has become the glorious monument to death's defeat."

        St. Athanasius, On the Incarnation of the Word.
