➕ “In ancient times, before the divine sojourn of the Saviour took place,
even to the saints, death was terrible, all wept for the dead as though they perished.
But now, that the Saviour has raised His body,
death is no longer terrible, for all who believe in Christ, trample on it, as it were nothing and choose rather to die, than deny their faith in Christ.
And that devil, that once maliciously exulted in death,
now that its pains were loosed, remained the only one truly dead.”
