Great are the Wonders of the Cross

GREAT ARE THE WONDERS OF THE CROSS!
IT PLANTED ABSTINENCE FIRMLY IN THE CHURCH.
AND UPROOTED ADAM’S LACK OF IT IN PARADISE.
ONE TREE IN EDEN BROUGHT DEATH TO MAN,
BUT ANOTHER ON GOLGOTHA GRANTED ETERNAL LIFE TO THE WORLD.
THE CROSS IS THE FOUNTAIN OF PARADISE
WHICH RELEASED YOUR LIFE-BEARING BLOOD AND WATER.

From The Lenten Triodion
