"The resurrection of Christ alone bolsters
our faith more than the multitude of his
other wonders. This alone is the unmovable
pillar, the firm anchor, the stable foundation
of the entire Christian religion... It fortifies
the faithful and confounds the unfaithful;
it unites people to Christ.
Take away the resurrection of Christ,
and all our faith grows tepid,
all our glory totters."
Saint Thomas of Villanova, Easter Sunday, Sermon 2,2
