Our hearts are meant to gather all of creation into the life of Christ. For recognizing Him is the source of true joy. And experiencing Him manifested in the world is the task of the Christian initiate.
“A Christian is one who, wherever he looks, finds Christ and rejoices in Him. An this joy transforms all his human plans and programs, decisions and actions, making all his mission the sacrament of the world’s return to Him who is the life of the world.” Alexander Schmemann
” The initiate of ancient times, when in the spiritual world, saw how evolution points the way to the as yet hidden Christ. The Christian initiate, however, experiences the unseen effects of the Christ manifested on earth.” Rudolf Steiner
