Believe ( St. Justin Popovich )
Man is born, in fact, not when his mother brings him into the world, but when he comes to believe in the Risen Christ, for then he is born to life eternal, whereas a mother bears children for death, for the grave.
The Resurrection of Christ is the mother of us all, all Christians, the mother of immortals. By faith in the Resurrection, man is born anew, born for eternity.
'' That is impossible,'' says the skeptic. But you listen to what the Risen God-Man says, '' All things are possible to him that believeth!'' ( St. Mark 9:23 )
The believer is he who lives, with all his heart, with all his soul, with all his being, according to the Gospel of the Risen Lord Jesus.
St. Justin Popovich
