Easter should make rebels of us all. David Bentley Hart, The Doors of the Sea (via invisibleforeigner)
Something strange is happening — there is a great silence in earth today, a great silence and stillness. The whole earth keeps silence because the King is asleep. The earth trembled and is still because God has fallen asleep in the flesh and he has raised up all who have slept ever since the world began. God has died in the flesh and hell trembles with fear. From an ancient homily on Holy Saturday and from the Office of Readings for Holy Saturday. (via laudsandvespers)
I am your God, who for your sake have become your son. Out of love for you and for your descendants I now by my own authority command all who are held in bondage to come forth, all who are in darkness to be enlightened, all who are sleeping to arise. I order you, O sleeper, to awake. I did not create you to be held a prisoner in hell. Rise from the dead for I am the life of the dead. Rise up, work of my hands, you were created in my image. Rise, let us leave this place, for you are in me and I am in you; together we form only one person and we cannot be separated. From an ancient homily on Holy Saturday and from the Office of Readings for Holy Saturday. (via laudsandvespers)
God singled out the weak of this world to shame the strong. From Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians and from the reading for Vespers for Tuesday of Holy Week. (via laudsandvespers)
