Let no one grieve at his poverty,
for the universal kingdom has been revealed.
Let no one mourn that he has fallen again and again;
for forgiveness has risen from the grave.
Let no one fear death, for the Death of our Savior has set us free.
He has destroyed it by enduring it.

—John Chrysostom, bishop of Constantinople; sermon, ca. 400

I wonder how many of our 21st century preachers will still be quoted in the 37th century 😀

Glad to be of service, Neil.

Lol, Kirsty! Will anyone understand what we say anyway?
