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

For AG

The way that bright planet, the moon, exalted, full of purpose
all at once surmounts the peaks, filling in serenely
the outlined night: look: just so my voice
rises purely out of the mountains of nevermore.
And the places - awestruck- that you occupied and left
ache more clearly for you.

-Rainer Maria Rilke
translated by Edward Snow
