St. Peter Chrysologus (the “golden-worded”) was known for
his clear and simple style of preaching. About the angel’s appearanceat the tomb, he preached, “Pray that the angel woulddescend now and roll away all the hardness of our hearts andopen up our closed senses and declare to our minds that Christhas risen, for just as the heart in which Christ lives and reigns isheaven, so also in the heart in which Christ remains dead andburied is a grave.”
For those who do not believe, life unfolds as a series of accidents.When a follower of Christ sees his life in exactly the sameway, Jesus calls that person foolish, slow to believe. Someone likethat needs to redirect his attention to the cross.
