Adoring the Holy Cross


How precious the gift of the cross, how splendid to contemplate!  In the cross there is no mingling of good and evil, as in the tree of paradise: it is wholly beautiful to behold and good to taste.  The fruit of this tree is not death but life, not darkness but light.  This tree does not cast us out of paradise, but opens the way for our return.

St. Theodore the Studite (759-826)
