Seeing God

Prophet Moses the God-seer

Moses testifies that while it was granted to him to do everything like God, at last he abandoned everything and prayed to see the Lord of all. For if the creatures of the Creator are so pleasant to look upon; how much more pleasant is their Creator to look upon; but because we have not any eye which is able to look upon his splendor, a mind was given us which is able to contemplate his beauty.”

(St. Ephraem in Faith Adoring the Mystery by Sidney H. Griffith, p 25)
