Number Eight of Series: “Mount Athos”

“[...T]ypikons are essential: they serve the essence. They have not been developed in order to stifle man’s life and spontaneity, but to purify him, to test him and show his worth, guiding him naturally in the right direction which leads to quiescence and the sacred rite of interpenetration, where all things shrink and expand. All things move apart and come together into one place. They reach the point where the order of deadness does not prevail, but the light of His countenance watches. And this unapproachable light fills things approachable with beauty from within, revealing the cosmic dimensions of the person and the personal dimensions of the cosmos, of the world.”
