Give ear, O my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth!
I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings from of old,
things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us.
We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation
the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.

The body that lay lifeless in the tomb is ours. The body that rose again on the third day is ours. The body that ascended above all the heights of heaven to the right hand of the Father’s glory is ours.
If then we acknowledge the price He paid for our salvation in a lowly body, we too are to rise to share His glory. The promise He made will be fulfilled in the sight of all: “Whoever acknowledges me before men, I too will acknowledge him before my Father who is in heaven.”
Leo the Great, 5th century
