mysteries

A Quote by St. John of San Francisco on god, christianity, god man, earth, sacredness, mysteries, mercy, love, and truth

Christ, invisible to the bodily eye, manifests Himself on earth clearly through His Church ... The Church is the Body of Christ both because its parts are united to Christ through His divine mysteries and because through her Christ works in the world.

St. John of San Francisco

A Quote by Huston Smith on loving kindness, mysteries, religion, religious experiences, and solace

A religion made up solely of heightened religious experiences would not be a religion at all. ...The major religious traditions address the mysteries (with or without entheogens), but they have other business to do: widen understanding, give meaning, provide solace, promote loving-kindness, and connect human being to human being.

A Quote by Stephen Elias on lay, litigant, temple, mysteries, ceremonies, dark, complex, lawyers, judges, cabalistic rituals, pretrial, procedures, unfathomable, high priests, priests, and tactical significance

The lay litigant enters a temple of mysteries whose ceremonies are dark, complex and unfathomable. Pretrial procedures are the cabalistic rituals of the lawyers and judges who serve as priests and high priests. The layman knows nothing of their tactical significance. He knows only that his case remains in limbo while the priests and high priests chant their length and arcane pretrial rites.
