And, because of the Incarnation, Life, Death, and Resurrection of Our Lord, we, too, have been ransomed. Christ’s coming to Earth began the victory march that eventually overthrew the gates of hell and won the victory over Satan.
So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written:
“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“ O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”
