Wednesdays with Words:: The Ultimate School of Our Humanity

Linking up with Dawn for Wednesdays with Words.

"... to thank the Giver, the Origin, is to arrive at the ultimate truth of things, the truth that is sought in logical thought, the truth of what things are; for in their deepest nature things are expressions of the love that moves the stars."

"The word 'Eucharist' means 'thanksgiving,' and the sacrifice of praise that is the.... Divine Liturgy is nothing less than the joining together of man and God in the perfect act of giving and thanksgiving."

"Liturgy is the consummation of education and the ultimate school of our humanity."

From Beauty in the Word by Stratford Caldecott.
