“Hope always draws the soul from the beauty which is seen to what is beyond, always kindles the desire for the hidden through what is constantly perceived.” – Gregory of Nyssa What are the desires you are aware of in your soul right now? Might they be pointing to something beyond themselves? Might a desire for beauty or love – that you recognize in the natural world or human relationships – actually be inviting you toward the Mystery that is ultimate Beauty and infinite Love? How is what is “seen” in your life right now inviting you to lean into what is unseen, “hidden”?
