      Christ is Risen! + Truly He is Risen!

      Adorn your face, therefore, with modesty, piety, almsgiving, benevolence, love, kindliness towards your husband, reasonableness, mildness, and forbearance. These are the pigments of virtue; by these you draw not men but angels to you as your lovers; for these you have God Himself to praise you. When God shall approve of you, He will win over your husband to you in every way; for if wisdom illumines the face of man, much more does virtue make the face of a woman shine forth.

        Christ is Risen! + Indeed, He is Risen!

        Just as at that time God took the rib of Adam and formed a woman, so Christ gave us blood and water from his side and formed the Church. Just as then He took the rib from Adam when he was in a deep sleep, so now He gave us blood and water after His death, first the water then the blood. But was then a deep slumber is now death, so that you may know that this death is henceforth sleep.
