From Pit of Death to Fountain of Life

From the sayings of Fr Matthew the Poor:

The mystery of resurrection as a tangible reality of faith was like a heavenly glorious light which, when it entered the hearts of the disciples, transferred all the humiliating and painful sorrows of the cross into honour, triumph, and glory. Death became redemption, the grave turned from the pit of death into the fountain of life.
