“O Death, where is thy sting? O Hell, where is thy victory? Christ is risen, and thou art overthrown. Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen. Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice. Christ is risen, and life reigns. Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in the grave…”
Blessings to you, Mary!
Inspiring! A new icon, telling an ancient but ever new story. Prayers , Mary.
This says it all, Mary. Thank you
Thank you all for your comments. I had hoped to write something yesterday but an image was given rather than words. Now you have supplied the words.
May the Paschal joy remain ever in our hearts!
P.S. Hi again, Mary. I saw that you commented at Fr. Stephen’s blog entry, https://blogs.ancientfaith.com/glory2godforallthings/2013/11/22/the-borders-of-our-lives.
but the reference is gone now, I don’t know how to search Fr. Stephen’s history/table of contents , if he has one.
I figured your comment there might have been related to this icon, so I wanted to read it–but I got so absorbed in the earlier discussion that I never got to yours. I’m at #32, I think (out of 165!). But I’ll keep going. That post with its collection of comments is really thought-provoking.
Good luck finding it! This is a 2013 post of Fr. Stephen’s. Glancing through, I see I commented on 11/28/13 at 3:50 PM but not about an icon. Let me know if you find anything interesting – I don’t have time to look more now but it does seem like it was a good exchange.
