The End and the Beginning

February 5, 2013

Christians suffer and the wicked prosper. But unlike his pagan counterpart, the Christian man knows that both trial by fire and each moment of happiness have their purpose and that purpose can be redeemed. “Every phrase and sentence that is right . . . is an end and a beginning.” Our end and our beginning, our tragedy and our comedy, our paradox is in the Divine Logos, the Word that was with God from the beginning. And we will find that when we come to the end of all our exploring here on earth:

. . . all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flame are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.
