St. Gregory the Theologian: We needed an Incarnate God, a God put to death . . .

Icon of St. Gregory the Theologian“We needed an Incarnate God, a God put to death, that we might live. We were put to death together with Him, that we might be cleansed; we rose again with Him because we were put to death with Him; we were glorified with Him, because we rose again with Him.”

— St. Gregory the Theologian, Oration 45, 28
