The Victory of the Cross
Dumitru Staniloae (1903-1993), a Romanian Orthodox priest, was Professor of Dogmatic Theology both at Sibiu in Transylvania and at Bucharest. As a result of the publication of his version of the ‘Philokalia’ in Romanian, he was particularly associated with monastic revival in his country. He was looked to as a Christian leader during the prolonged oppression of Christians in Romania and was imprisoned 1958-63. He is becoming known increasingly in the English-speaking world, as more of his writings are translated.

Suffering is something which no-one can escape, and when we are confronted with it, whether in ourselves or in others, we find ourselves wrestling with a baffling problem. Dumitru Staniloae shows how the deepest meaning of suffering is revealed in Christ’s unconditional acceptance of the Cross. There we see the power of God’s love which transfigures all suffering, so that the Cross becomes the symbol of victorious love.
