Isaac was allergy because of a bee’s sucker. Doctors recommended that he should not go to any place where bees can be found. As Isaac was on a journey with his father, a bee came into the car. Isaac and his father panicked. As the father had to protect his son, he caught the bee in his hands. With his nails he cut the bee’s sucker and released it. As the bee flew again in the car, Isaac panicked. However, his father embraced him saying, “Don’t be afraid Isaac, I cut its sucker, it won’t harm you. Let her fly.”
Christ lived among us.
Death, that kills us, tried to kill Him but it could not kill the Giver of life.
Christ caught death and cut its sting (the bee’s sucker).
Now with all confidence we praise,
“O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”
Thanks to Christ who, in His Fatherhood, made us conquer our last enemy: Death.
