Death is Dead

Why this Friday is good:

It was not death that pleased God the Father, but rather the will of him who freely died, who through that death abolished death, made salvation possible, and restored innocence, who triumphed over principalities and powers, robbed death and enriched heaven, who restored peace to what is in heaven and on earth and united everything.

– St. Bernard of Clairvaux

(Thanks to Becket on Tumblr who shared this.)
