Christ Sanctifies All Human Action

Monday after the First Sunday in Lent
February 22, 2010

The Lord be with you

"But Christ, the repairer of evildoing, assumes manhood in the fullness, and saves humanity and becomes the type and figure of us all, to sanctify the firstfruits of every action and leave to his servants no doubt in their zeal for the tradition. Baptism, then, is a purification from sins, a remission of trespasses, a cause of renovation and regeneration."

-Gregory of Nysaa, On the Baptism of Christ

Blessings in Christ,
Pastor John Rickert
