"Life comes again to us as Gift, a free and divine gift.... Adam is again introduced to Paradise, taken out of nothingness and crowned king of creation. Everything is free, nothing is due and yet all is given. And therefore, the greatest humility and obedience is to accept the gift, to say yes- in joy and gratitude."
-Alexander Schmemann, For the Life of the World
"He is not here; He is risen!"
-The two angels to the women in Luke 24
