Free Gift of Love


God is love. In the abundance of His mercy He has brought all things out of non-existence into being. “So as to multiply the objects of His eneficence,” God creates man in His own image and likeness. Man lives according to the natural functioning of his being only if he responds to the free gift of God’s love. And this love is paradise. And this love is hell for those who have estranged themselves from ec­static love, from loving in the likeness of God, and have shut themselves into the suffocating jail of self- love.

Hymn of Entry by
Elder Vasileios Gondikakis
