On mind, desire and memory


June 20, the day of my priestly ordination, is also the feast of the great Orthodox saint, Byzantine mystic and theologian, Nicholas Kabasilas (Greek: Νικόλαος Καβάσιλας; 1319/1323 – 1392). He wrote: “We were given thinking in order to know Christ; desire, in order to run to Him; memory, to remember Him”.

Do I believe that by thinking, desiring and remembering Christ these faculties function healthily and fruitfully?
