Join with Catholic:Under The Hood in another meditation upon the icons of the Eastern Church by looking at the icon of the Resurrection. This icon is based upon the apocryphal Gospel of Nicodemus and is sometimes called the Harrowing of Hell because it relates Christ descent among the dead to free the souls of those who died before his resurrection.
Today we celebrate Christ’s victory over death and, in turn, our own libertation from the forces of death and darkness. Christ died for the sake of the world and in him the whole world is reborn.
