Reflections on the Divine Nature (With St. Maximus the Confessor)

“It is impossible for the infinite to exist on the same level of being as finite things, and no argument will ever be capable of demonstrating that being and what is beyond being are the same, nor that the measured and immeasurable can be put in the same class, nor that the absolute can be ranked with that which exists in relation to other things, nor that that which has nothing predicated of it and that which is constituted by predication belong together.  For all created things are defined, in their essence and in their way of developing, by their own logoi and by the logoi of the beings that provide their external context.  Through these logoi they find their defining limits.  We are speechless before the sublime teaching about the Logos, for He cannot be expressed in words or conceived in thought.” – St. Maximus the Confessor
