The Great & Holy Saturday

Awake, sleeper,
I have not made you to be held a prisoner in the underworld, 
Arise from the dead; I am the lie of the dead.
Arise, O human, work of my hands,
arise, you who were fashioned in my image.
Rise, let us go hence;
for you in me and I in you,
together we are one undivided person.
(From an ancient homily for Holy Saturday)
