St. Cyril of Jerusalem: Believe the Resurrection

Good thought from St. Cyril of Jerusalem today as try to remember that Easter and the resurrection continue to change everything.

“Cannot the Creator who gave existence to a person that did not exist bring to life again a person that did exist but is now dead? Every year he makes the corn spring to life that had withered and died after it was sown. Do you suppose that he who raised himself from the dead for our sake will have any difficulty in raising us to new life? Or look at the trees. For a number of months they remain without fruit, even without leaves. But once the winter is past, they become green, they become green all over, new, as if risen from the dead.”
