- Christ Is Risen! Truly He Is Risen!
"A divine philosopher is he who through ascetic purification and noetic
contemplation has achieved a direct union with God, and is a true friend of
God, in that he esteems and loves the supreme, creative and true wisdom above
every other love, wisdom and knowledge. A student of spiritual knowledge,
though not properly speaking a philosopher (even though reflected wisdom has
unnoticed appropriated the name of philosophy, as St. Gregory of Naizianzos
points out) is he who esteems and studies God's wisdom mirrored in His
creation, down to the least vestige of it; but he does this without any
self-display or any hankering after human praise and glory, for he wishes to
be a lover of God's wisdom in creation and not a lover of materialism."
St. Gregory of Sinai.
"I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O God; Incline Your ear to me,
and hear my speech." Psalm 17:6
