Death Has No Sting!

holycrossby Sr. Spero

Today is the Feast of the Holy Cross, and the day we sing the Lauds antiphon that captures the essence of Christianity.

O great work of love! Death died at the same time, when life died upon the tree.

If I can grasp the full meaning of this paradox, then my life will be totally different. Death and darkness will have no power, and I will live in a state of gratitude for the sacrifice of the cross.
