The Liturgy of Theology

Archimandrite Aimilianos said in a talk:

“In speaking of the Holy Apostles and the Fathers of the Church, we return to the story of creation, for the Holy Fathers are true images of God.  All that they said and did was according to the image and likeness of God (Gen 1:26).

And they celebrate the liturgy of theology in the company of all creation, for together with them

the heavens declare the glory of God (Ps 18:1);

the rivers lift up their voices (Ps 92:4);

the mountains rejoice (Ps 97:8) and skip like lambs at the presence of the Lord (Ps 113:6).

Deeps calls unto deep (Ps 42:7) and

night proclaims knowledge to night (Ps 18:3);

San Francisco

the morning stars sing together and shout for joy (Job 38:7),

indeed there are no tongues or voices in which the praise of God is not heard (Ps 18:4),

so that even the very stones cry out: Blessed is He Who comes in the name of the Lord! (cf Lk 19:38-40).”

(THE WAY OF THE SPIRIT, p 276)
