Thoroughly Alive

We must hunger after the beautiful and the good...


A beautiful Sabbath to you.

Put fear aside. Now

that He has entered

into death on our behalf,

all who live

no longer die

as men once died.

That ephemeral occasion

has met its utter end,

As seeds cast to the earth, we

will not perish,

but like those seeds

shall rise again - the shroud

of death itself having been

burst to tatters

by love's immensity.

-St. Athanasios, as adapted by Scott Cairns in his book Love's Immensity.
