“(Death) Unable to function in the person of the Son of God, malediction becomes benediction; by the cross, all the conditions of sin nor death separates us any longer from God. For baptism enshrouds us in the death of Christ to raise us up with Him; for penitence can always take us back to God, and death, daily assumed by penitence, can open for us the life divine” (Vladimir Lossky, Orthodox Theology, 113).
