Old Text File Rummage Part Uno

18 07 2007

I was going through a bunch of old text documents from over the years, and I came across this quote I had saved from St. Maximos the Confessor,

“The mystery of the Incarnation of the Word contains within itself the whole meaning of the created world. He who understands the mystery of the Cross and of the Tomb knows the meaning of all things, and he who is initiated into the hidden meaning of the Resurrection understands the goal for which God created everything from the very beginning.”


I don’t know the source of the quote, which isn’t terribly helpful. But It’s good nonetheless.
