While we await
Our eternal return
To fully live in God,
It is our job and our joy to commune with Him
By entering into the divine discourse that
Requires no words.
While the Eucharist is the fount and summit of
All created interface with the Holy Trinity,
Personal prayer is the daily guarantor that
We seek in order to bind in union the divinity
We share by the energies of God with that
Divinity, which is God’s in Essence.
The prayers we offer to, for, and with God,
Rather than being long, thin and petty, are
Intended to plunge the depths of the hypostatic union
In order to help the true believer
Transverse the divide between the
Kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of man.
Andrew Rublev's 15th century icon of the Holy Trinity based on the Hospitality of Abraham.
