Is known through its two manifestations: heat and light

October 5th 2018
When you light a fire, a flame leaps forth and gives light. Fire and light are sometimes mistaken for one another. But when we speak of fire, we are referring to the cause, and light is a consequence – there is no light without fire. But what fire is in itself we do not know. We can only know it through its two manifestations: heat and light. The Holy Trinity is one of the symbolic representations of the great mystery of fire. Fire is the Father. And from the Father proceed the Son – the Christ – which is light or wisdom, and the Holy Spirit, which is heat or love.
