Sermon on the Sunday of the Paralytic, by Fr. Gregory Hogg (when we are weak, He is strong)

from the website Pillar and Ground of Truth

Fr. Gregory explores the theological underpinnings of the weakness of the paralysis that touches us all, and exhorts us to . . .

let weakness teach us humility . . .  

let it teach us to trust Christ,

Who can sympathize with our weakness.

 Being God, He became man

and bore our common weakness.

He hungered, and thirsted, and grew tired,

and, full of love,

embraced our death.

Christ, risen from the dead,

 trampled down death by death,

and upon those in the tombs He bestows life.
