Quote of the Week

"To contemplate the smallest object is to experience the Trinity: the very being of the object takes us back to the Father; the meaning it expresses, its logos, speaks to us of the Logos, [Christ]; its growth to fullness and beauty reveals the Breath, the Life-Giver, [the Holy Spirit]."

- Olivier Clement, 20th-century French Orthodox theologian, paraphrasing the early church father Maximus the Confessor
