Paperback: 432 pages
Saint Symeon the New Theologian experienced the fullness of God. In profound stillness, noetic prayer, and divine illumination, during his all-night vigils the Holy Trinity revealed Himself with an intimacy rarely granted to even one person in a generation. The torrents of grace given to him prompted Saint Symeon to lead others to a similar experience through his holy writings. Boldly disclosing his encounters with God, Hymns of Divine Love has no peer with which to be compared. It stands apart at a height, divulging the experience of man’s deification in the Uncreated Light—perfect union with Christ the Bridegroom, Who came into the world for this very purpose.
