Who can fathom the Cross of Christ? Who can measure its weight? The Cross of Christ comprises all the crosses of all men from the beginning to the end of time. Qualitatively, the Cross is incomprehensible, and its size infinite. Our minds are too limited to rush upwards. And our hearts are too poor, too narrow to embrace it. We are unable to grasp the height, and depth, and length, and breadth of this Cross, because we cannot bear the sight of the sufferings it entails.

The fashion of this world passeth away.’ Nothing remains fixed and unshakeable. Without the expectation of the Resurrection and of the Kingdom ‘which shall not be moved’, all things, even our existence, appear absurd. But we Christians, who receive as food the Immortal Christ, who are illumined by His word and quickened by the invocation of His Name, know even in our own bodies that, ‘Christ is risen from the dead, and hath become the first fruits of them that slept.’
