The power of life in the Lord's resurrection

The following wonderful quote is from Abu Daoud writing in St Francis Magazine Vol 8, No 2, April 2012

"Christianity is built on the conviction that out of the most radical and disastrous despair, God turned the tables on the Empire and the Temple that killed his Son, and his resurrection was nothing less than the victory of God. The power of life in that resurrection flowed out into a community called out by God, the Church. That community was called to be a sacrament of secret life and an imperfect but real embassy of God’s reign, which, like yeast in dough, spreads and leavens."
