St Justin of Serbia
Man sentenced God to death; by His Resurrection, He sentenced man to immortality.
In return for a beating, He gives an embrace; for abuse, a blessing; for death, immortality.
Man never showed so much hate for God as when he crucified Him, and God never showed more love for man than when He arose.
Man even wanted to reduce God to a mortal, but God by His Resurrection made man immortal.
The crucified God is Risen and has killed death. Death is no more. Immortality has surrounded man and all the worlds.
- St. Justin of Serbia
