The Sublime Height of Love for God
There exists no other book in the Church like Saint Symeon’s intimate revelation of his union with God.
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.
