“Εν τω Φωτί Σου οψόμεθα Φως”.

Προσκυνητής: Την ευχή σου, Γέροντα.

Γέροντας: Του Θεού, παιδί μου. Καλωσόρισες στην Καλύβη μας. Πήγαινε μέσα να προσκυνήσεις τον Άγιό μας, να κεραστείς και να ξεκουραστείς. Εγώ θα κατέβω στον κήπο να μαζέψω ό,τι έδωσε ο Θεός. ΄Εχουμε πολλούς προσκυνητές απόψε. Θα σε δω αργότερα, μετά τον Εσπερινό.

"How the Holy Mysteries represent the Church" by St Nicholas Cabasilas

The Church is represented in the holy mysteries (Sacraments), not in figure only, but as the limbs are represented in the heart, and the branches in the root, and, as our Lord has said, the shoots in the vine.
