A fitting thought, with Advent almost here….
“Insert yourself into this secret between both the One Unbegotten God and the One Only-begotten God!
“Dive into the hidden place of this unimaginable Nativity!
“Start out, run forward, keep going!
“Even though I know you won’t get there, I will congratulate you for what you will accomplish. For one pursues the infinite things with dutiful tenderness; and even if one never catches up to them, one still will profit from having gone out.”
“….insere te in hoc secretum, et inter unum ingenitum Deum, et unum unigenitum Deum, arcano te inopinabilis nativitatis immerge.
“Incipe, procurre, persiste:
“etsi non perventurum sciam, tamen gratulabor profecturum. Qui enim pie infinita persequitur, etsi non contingat aliquando, tamen proficiet prodeundo.”
St. Hilary of Poitiers, De Trinitate, lib. II, c. 10.
“Incipe, procurre, persiste!” seems like a great motto.
