Rise: The Great Fifty Days 22

0

Since our existence is divided into two sections, the one under the temptations and sufferings of this present life, and the other that which is attained in the security and joy of eternity through Christ, so the circle of the Easter Festival is divided into two sections, the time before and after Easter. The time before Easter points us to the conflict of this present life, the time after Easter to the blessedness which we can obtain through Christ. The Lordʼs Passion shows us the present life of suffering. The Resurrection and glorification of the Lord shows the life which we shall receive. Augustine
