Prayer: Symeon, the New Theologian, Byzantine Monk

Open your heart to Him
and let yourself receive Him
whose love embraces
every most hidden part of us,
and realizes us in joy as Him.

And He makes us, utterly, real,
and everything that is hurt, everything
that seemed to us dark, harsh, shameful,
maimed, ugly, irreparably
damaged, is in Him transformed
and recognized as whole, as lovely,
and radiant in His light.

He awakens as the Beloved in every last part of our body.
