The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

A Pagan Prayer


Good people will therefore say when they are dying:

I leave full of greatness to you [God], for you have judged me worthy of celebrating this festival with you, of contemplating your works, and of following together with you the way in which you govern the world.

-from the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius

How much more should we rejoice, we who have been invited to the Eternal Wedding Feast of the Lamb!
