quod pro nobis traditum est

by Rev. Benjamin Harju at Paredwka Apparently, this is called "123 Book Meme." The rules are:

1. Pick up the book closest to me and find page 123,

2. count the first five sentences,

3. post the following three sentences

Interesting, both books closest to me speak of the Resurrection on p. 123. Decisions!

"For He has promised us this Resurrection which He showed us in Himself; because the members must share the glory of their Head. Our Redeemer for this reason took death upon Him, that we might not be afraid to die; He showed us His own Resurrection, that we might hope that we too shall rise again. And He willed this same death might not continue longer than three days, lest, should resurrection be delayed in Him, we might wholly despair of it."
(Gregory the Great, Sermon on Job xix. 25-27, The Sunday Sermons of the Great Fathers,Tr. and Ed. by M.F. Toal, Vol. IV, p. 123
Thank you Rev. Harju. I tag Dan Woodring at Beatus Vir and Rev. Randy Asburry at RAsburry's Res
