This is another reason for the trials, that Christ’s life might be manifested in human bodies.

“The dead man was being buried, and many friends were conducting him to his tomb. Christ, the life and resurrection, meets him there. He is the Destroyer of death and of corruption. He is the One in whom we live and move and are. He is who has restored the nature of man to that which it originally was and has set free our death-fraught flesh from the bonds of death.” ~ St. Cyril of Alexandria #sonofthewidowofnain #power #resurrection #victory #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox

“For many come to faith, but few are brought into the Heavenly Kingdom. And many serve God with their tongue, but turn from Him in their lives. From this we should reflect on two things. The first is that no one should presume concerning his own salvation; for though he is called to the Faith, he knows not whether he will be chosen to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. The second is, that no one should take it upon himself to despair of his neighbor, whom he sees steeped in vice because no one knows the richness of the Divine mercy.”- St. Gregory the Dialogist of Rome #salvation #resurrection #mercy #risen #coptic #orthodox #dailyreadings #divine

This is the grace of the Lord, and these are the Lord’s means of restoration for the children of men. For He suffered to prepare freedom from suffering for those who suffer in Him; He descended that He might raise us up; He took on Him the trial of being born that we might love Him who is uncreated; He went down to corruption, that corruption might put on immortality. He became weak for us, may we might rise with power; He descended to death, that He may bestow on us immortality, and give life to the dead. Finally, He became Man, that we who die as men might live again, and that death should no more reign over us – St Athanasius . . #lifeinchrist #resurrection #holy50 #grace #coptic #orthodoxy #copticorthodox #dailyreadings

The Cross is our Christian motto, a symbol of suffering. The Cross encompasses the depth of the physical suffering (pain) of Christ. It impacts our souls more than any other event in the glorious life of our Lord. There is no doubt that every event in the life of our Lord Jesus Christ impacts us, but the image of the Cross is the most influential one. – Pope Shenouda . #Suffering #ChristsSuffering #SonOfMan #Crucifixion #Resurrection #Coptic #CopticOrthodox #Orthodox #DailyReadings

Death is an intruder into humanity. When God created man, He created him for life. He breathed in his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul. God willed life and immortality for man. But when man’s freedom deviated towards sin, he brought death upon himself, because ‘the wages of sin is death’ (Rom.6:23). Thus death entered into the world, and all die. For this reason, the Resurrection rejoices us, for it is victory over death and the returning of life to man’s nature once more Pope Shenouda lll . . #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox #resurrection #joy #victory #ohdeathwhereisyoursting #eternallife #orthodoxy #holy50days

“Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.” – John 2:19-20 . “The disciples had gathered behind closed doors due to their fear of the Jews (John 20:19). When a person remains in the city of revelation, feeling secure, and overcome by holy meditation- while in fear of evil spirits, and enclosing his senses, that person welcomes the word of God. Then it is revealed to him in a mysterious manner rather than through the senses. It proclaims peace to him, while granting calmness and freedom from lusts…as he inhales this breeze, it grants him the many gifts of the Holy Spirit and the power over evil spirits, while revealing to him the marks and concepts of the divine mysteries.” – St. Mark the Ascetic . “God, who is loving and merciful, has released the body from its imprisonment, and has liberated it from the slavery of destruction. A slavery that is deadly and bitter. He has granted the body immortality in the eternal life. In this manner, He has granted the human body the gift of holy eternity, making it immortal and alive for ever.” – St. Clement of Alexandria #doorswereshut #peacebewithyou #resurrection #appearance #disciples #ChristIsRisen #TrulyHeIsRisen #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox
