In our heart is hidden, from the moment of our baptism, the Holy Spirit itself. His prayer is within us: "We know neither what nor how to pray. But the Spirit is bound up for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words" (Rom. 8:26). The mind descends into the heart and finds that the Lord is already there. We begin to become what we were eternally destined to be.
We think of the heart as a small, personal space, but persistence in prayer reveals that such a small space can contain the infinite, just like the Virgin's womb. "The kingdom of God is already within you."
A modern tour of the Orthodox faith and life for those who want to get to know from the beginning or to re-remember the charming corners of our Tradition.
