"We may say that on the first Good Friday afternoon was completed that great act by which light conquered darkness..."
"The wonder of Good Friday is that the victor lies vanquished by the vanquished one."
"We have to look deeper into the very heart and essence of things before we can see how real the victory is, that thus hides itself under the guise of defeat." - Phillips Brooks, 1835-1893
