Metropolitan Ioan of Timisoara (Romania) recounts the time when his mother brought him the good news of Resurrection.
Metropolitan Ioan of Timisoara:
“I will tell you when I received a good news in my life.
When I was in the cradle, on Easter night, my mother went to the church for the service of Resurrection.
And… She came back home with the lit candle, leaning over my cradle, making the sign of the cross with the lit candle and whispering me: “Christ is Risen!”
Since then, I believe in the Resurrection, because my mother never lied to me…
Brethren and sistren, I also believe that your mothers never lied to you…”
