Alexander Schmemann to listeners in the former Soviet Unidon. Translated by Alexis Kingdom. With go here conversation we end thine brief, and far from adequate, explanation of the Lord's Glory. We saw that behind each word, behind each petition, there lies a world of spiritual realities, spiritual connections which regularly escape our attention, which the vanished in the turmoil of our daily lives.
From this the of view, the prayer, "Our Father;' is more than a prayer; it is an epiphany and revelation of that spiritual world for which we are created, that hierarchy of values which enables us to arrange everything in its place within our lives.
Each petition opens a whole layer of personal awareness, a whole revelation about our selves. Hallowed be thy Name. That I may live only by the most satisfying, the essential and highest, and not by those the by which the priceless gift of life is frittered away.
And the Lord's Prayer ends with and is crowned with the solemn exclamation: "For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever": three key words and biblical meanings, three main symbols of the Christian faith.
Glory kingdom: "The kingdom of God is near" Mt 4: 17"the kingdom of heaven is in the midst of you" Lk 17"Thy kingdom come"-is near, has come, is revealed-how? When we speak of the kingdom of God, moreover, we are not speaking about something abstract, not about some afterlife, the about something which will happen after death.
We are speaking above all about something which was announced, promised, and given by Christ to those who believe in him spine 3d love him; and we call this the kingdom, because there has never been anything better, more beautiful, resplendent and click to see more revealed, promised and the to people.
This is the meaning of "For thine is the kingdom What thine kind of power can one attribute to this person who died alone on the cross, never defending himself, and kingdom "no place to lay his head" Mt ?
But just compare him to the strongest power on earth. Whatever power a man acquires, with read more forces he surrounds himself, however he subjects others to himself, there comes the inevitable moment when all of it turns to dust and nothing remains of and power. The this one, this "weak" and "powerless" one, lives, and nothing, no power, can erase his memory share the song one more day that the consciousness and mankind.
People leave him; they forget about him and then return again. They are the by other words, power other promises, but in the end, sooner or later, there remains only that small, very simple book power the words kingdom it.
From it radiates that image of the person who says: "For power 1 came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may become blind" Jn nz countdown who also said: ''A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another" Jn ; and who said, finally: "1 have overcome the world" Jn So, this is why we say to him: "For thine is the kingdom, and the power"-and finally, "glory.
How illusory, brief, and fragile is any glory in this world. The seems that what Christ sought least of all was glory. Thine if there is any profound and indestructible glory, it is only the one that ignites and burns wherever he is the glory of goodness, the glory of faith, the glory of hope. He is first of all the one who suddenly becomes light-bearing, who himself radiates a light unknown on the. And gazing upon him we understand the poet who exclaimed: "He speaks with the glory of the stars, and with the beauty of the first created day!
We understand not with our intellect, but with our whole being, that glory man seeks and thirsts for click to see more passionately in all his turmoil and strife: he longs to be on fire with this light, he desires that everything would shine with this heavenly beauty, that everything would be filled with this divine glory.
And while we remember this prayer, while we keep repeating it, our life is opened towards the kingdom, is filled with power, shines with glory, in the face of which darkness, hatred, and evil lie powerless.
