It is night while this life is lived. And when is this night illuminated? It is lighted when Christ descends to the night. He took the flesh of this generation and our night received the light.
(En. in ps. 138,14)
The absence of the Lord is not an absence. Just believe, and the one who you do not see is with you.
Necessity is the mother of all human actions.
(En. in ps. 83, 8)
