Need help in finding a Vladimir Lossky quote.
« on: June 18, 2012, 10:44:33 PM »
Sadly I have become impotent to Google at the moment.

Vladimir Lossky contrasted the Church and Christ to Moses and the Exodus about the salvation of millions. It was a fantastic little snippet and I had that quote saved on a txt document which I have lost.

Can anyone tell me what it is and from what book?

I think I may have gotten it:

"For freedom from death and the introduction of human nature into God's Kingdom realize the only true Exodus. This sacrifice, ... represents a sacrament, sacrament par excellence, the free gift to God, by Christ in His humanity, of the first fruits of creation, the fulfillment of that immense sacramental action, devolving first upon Adam, which the new humanity must complete, the offering of the cosmos as receptacle of grace."

You can go ahead and lock up this terrible, bandwith wasting thread, mods. Thank you!
