The Heart

"It is according to Christ that the human heart has been created;

like an immense jewel case, it is vast enough to contain even God.

That is why nothing here below can satisfy us...

For the human soul thirsts for the infinite..

the desire of the heart is to run toward Christ."

A quote from Nicholas Cabasilas, The Life in Christ, pg 96
