“Because of you, the Gospels proclaim, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord’ (Lk 19:38)
Through you, the churches of those who possess the orthodox faith have been founded in the cities, in the villages, in the isles …., the Conqueror of death and Destroyer of hell has come forth … He has come, the Maker of the first creation, the heavenly kingdom….
Through you, the beauty of the Resurrection flowered, and its brilliance shone out. ., the tremendous baptism of holiness in the Jordan has shone out. John and the river Jordan are made holy, and the devil is cast out. Through you, every faithful soul achieves salvation.”

Cyril of Alexandria, Homily 11; PG 77, 1030.
