The Cross of Christ Gives Life to the Human Race

Christ is our bridge from death to lifeThe cross of Christ spanned the jaws of death like a bridge by which souls might pass from the region of the dead to the land of the living. Let us offer our Lord the great and all-embracing sacrifice of our love, pouring out our treasury of hymns and prayers before him who offered his cross in sacrifice to God for the enrichment of us all.
[Excerpt from a sermon by St. Ephrem, deacon]
