Many, my beloved, are the true witnesses of Christ. The Father bears witness from heaven to His Son. The Holy Spirit bears witness, coming down bodily in the form of a dove. The Archangel Gabriel bears witness, bringing good tidings to Mary. The Virgin Mother of God bears witness....The holy wood of the cross bears witness, seen among us to the present day, and now almost filling the whole world by means of those who in faith take away from here portions of it.
