#119 („frumos”, adică „bun”)

„In Greek, the word, kalos, carries a double meaning: it can mean good, and it can mean beautiful. The same is true of the Hebrew word tov. It is these words that we find in Genesis when God says that creation is good. I believe that the double sense of these words are both true. To know the goodness of creation is also to know its beauty (nor can they truly be separated).”

Fr. Stephen Freeman
