Easter 2014

O risen Lord, Thou hast, by Thy Resurrection, become all things to all men! O most rich King, Thou hast, with one gift, filled all the empty hands stretched heavenward! Rejoice, O ye heavens and, O ye earth, rejoice! Rejoice O ye heavens, as a mother rejoices when she feeds her hungry children; rejoice O ye earth, as children rejoice on receiving nourishment from their mother’s hand!

Christ’s victory is the only victory in which all humanity can rejoice, from the first created to the last. Every other victory on earth has divided and still divides, men from one another.

Earthly victories look better when viewed from afar, but uglier and more repulsive when seen close at hand; while, as for Christ’s victory, one could not say whence it looks better, from afar or from close at hand.  Looking at this victory from afar, we marvel at it as unique in its brightness, purity and saving grace. Looking at it from close at hand, we marvel at it because of the terrible enemies who are overcome by it, and also because of the vast numbers of slaves who have been freed by it. Today is the day above all other days in the year consecrated to the celebration of this victory of Christ’s, and so it is fitting to look at this victory from close at hand, both for our better knowledge and for our greater joy.
