Happy Easter everyone!
All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing
Thou burning sun with golden beam
Thou silver moon with softer gleam
O praise Him, O praise Him
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia
Who will bring a charge against Gods chosen ones?
It is God who acquits us.
It is Christ Jesus who died, rather, was raised,
who also is at the right hand of God,
who indeed intercedes for us.
What will separate us from the love of Christ?
Will anguish, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness,
or peril, or the sword?
As it is written:
For your sake we are being slain all the day;
we are looked upon as sheep to be slaughtered.
No, in all these things we conquer overwhelmingly through him who loved us.
For I am convinced that neither death,
nor life, nor angels, nor principalities,
nor present things, nor future things, nor powers,
nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature
will be able to separate us from the love of God
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Because it soars upward, the eagle is a symbol of the resurrection or ascension of Christ. By extension, the eagle symbolizes baptized Christians, who have symbolically died and risen with Christ. The eagle is also the symbol of John the Evangelist, because of his lofty and "soaring" gospel (it is much more theological in nature than the other three).
The eagle is used in heraldry both as a charge (something drawn on the shield) or as a supporter (something holding the shield up). Parts of the eagle's body such as its head, wings or leg are also used as a crest or charge.
In addition, it symbolized immortality, courage, farsightedness and strength. It is considered to be the king of the air and the messenger of the highest Gods. After old faith it looks directly when flying up into the sun, why it is also a symbol for the ascent in the sky and the release of the soul. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
