As If He Never Came

“We manage to forget…death and then, all of a sudden, in the midst of our ‘enjoying life’ it comes to us: horrible, inescapable, senseless.  We may from time to time acknowledge and confess our various ‘sins,’ yet we cease to refer our life to that new life which Christ revealed and gave to us.  Indeed, we live as if He never came.  This is the only real sin, the sin of all sins, the bottomless sadness and tragedy of our nominal Christianity.”     Alexander Schmemann
