- Christ Is Risen! Truly He Is Risen!
"Faith is the door to mysteries. What the bodily eyes are to sensory objects,
the same is faith to the eyes of the intellect that gaze at hidden treasures.
Even as we have two bodily eyes, we possess two eyes of the soul, as the
Fathers say; yet both have not the same operation with respect to divine
vision. With one we see the hidden glory of God which is concealed in the
natures of things; that is to say, we behold His might, His wisdom, and His
eternal providence for us which we understand by the magnitude of His
governance on our behalf. With this same eye we also behold the heavenly
orders of our fellow servants. With the other we behold the glory of His holy
nature. When God is pleased to admit us to spiritual mysteries, He opens wide
the sea of faith in our minds."
Saint Isaac the Syrian.
"Sing to the Lord, bless His name; Proclaim the good news of His salvation
