“Consider the cross itself, how much power it symbolizes. In former times, you see, this cross was a death with a curse on it, a death of ignominy, the most shameful of all deaths. now, on the contrary – lo, it has become more honorable than life itself, more resplendent than a crown.”

– St John Chrysostom
