Christian Life as True Marriage

   
Third Edition

by Archimandrite Vasileios, Abbot of Iveron Monastery, Mount Athos
Translated from the Greek by Dr Elizabeth Theokritoff

Number Four of Series: “Mount Athos”

“The Fathers use the language of marriage to speak about the relationship between the soul and God, while man lives in the flesh, in order to describe the complete freedom from passion that he has attained. They use the language of marriage for the relationship between man and God in the Kingdom of heaven, where there is no possibility of physical marriage. In other words, they refer to the strongest and most all-embracing communion and union on earth—as that of the bride and bridegroom is—in order to speak about the ineffable and indescribable qualities of the total mingling of the divine marriage that is accomplished between the soul and the Word.”
