Orthodox Monk: The Memory of Death

20 Feb

“Because the memory of death is a charism of the Holy Spirit it cannot be explained in words; it can only be practised. Because it is a voluntary activity, the memory of death is something that the monk or lay person must engage in willingly: they must turn to the idea of departure and focus on it.” (via JD Swartz) http://orthodoxmonk.blogspot.com/2012/02/memory-of-death.html
