Fr. Thomas Colyandro
Pouring Forth Water and Blood
"On the cross Christ was wounded in His side to bring forth water and blood to all who believe and come to Him -- water for washing away the impurity of sin, and blood to withhold its power. How blessed is that day on which Christ's side was opened on the cross for the sinner to find in it his righteousness, his sanctity, and his redemption."
- Matthew the Poor in The Communion of Love, p. 108."
