Autumn Excellence

“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,

 

whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”(Philippians 4:8)

“To be concerned with the nature of created things has a very purifying effect.

It frees us from passionate-attachment to them and from delusion about them;

and it is the surest of means for raising our soul to the Source of all.

For all beauty, miracle, magnificence reflects

what is supremely beautiful, miraculous and magnificent –

reflects, rather, the Source that is above beauty, miracle and magnificence.”  (St Theodoros the Great Ascetic – d, 848AD, The Philokalia, Kindle Loc. 11636-42)
