Gregory of Nazianzus
- Christ is Risen! + Truly He is Risen!
He is Sanctification, as being Purity, that the Pure may be contained by Purity.
And Redemption, because He sets us free, who were held captive under sin, giving
Himself a Ransom for us, the Sacrifice to make expiation for the world. And
Resurrection, because He raises up from hence, and brings to life again us, who
were slain by sin.
Gregory of Nazianzus, Fourth Theological Oration
