ExoTheology & Space-Age Interpretations of the Bible

(religious implications of an inhabited universe)

“[Christ] has made [the earth] blossom afresh with men brought back to life.”

I love this line by St. Maximus, quoted by Randy Sly, found on catholic.org, in a sermon entitled Inspire: Easter Beyond the Octave. Why Do We Celebrate for Fifty Days?

The Season of Easter is not just about His resurrection but also ours.  St. Maximus of Turin wrote in the 5th Century, “Christ is risen! He has burst open the gates of hell and let the dead go free; he has renewed the earth through the members of his Church now born again in baptism, and has made it blossom afresh with men brought back to life.

“His Holy Spirit has unlocked the doors of heaven, which stand wide open to receive those who rise up from the earth.” [emphasis mine]
