Let us devoutly celebrate this day, for just as the first ones to share our faith adored Christ lying in the manger, let us adore Him reigning in heaven.
Whoever seeks joy in himself will be sad, but whoever seeks joy in God will always be joyful because God is forever.
(In Io. Ev. XIV, 2)
Fly over what is bodily and embrace the being of the soul; transcend the soul and please God.
(In Io. Ev. XX, 11)
