Light of Love

      No Comments on Light of Love

The heart of living Orthodoxy is alive in the light of love, renewing the tradition from within as vibrant joy.  Love of God is the way to God’s light of love, which is the reason elders transmit the mystical theology of the Song of Songs.  Without the light of love, Holy Orthodoxy shrivels up, reduced to its external forms and nominal… Read more »
