the liturgical ascetic

I'm in C.S. Lewis Class right now. I've decided I want to be proposed to in this class. So darn beautiful.

Madeleine L'Engle wrote:
We are called to be co-creators with our God.

In Fagerberg's book on asceticism, he writes most beuatifully of Liturgy being the central work of our race. Liturgy is our vocation, our vocation to create ourselves with God. To turn ourselves towards God, and then turn into beings that are not only made in His likeness, but are His images.

God became man so that he could descend to the last last place, so that he could find them there, broken and shackled, grab them by the wrist, and say, come up with me.

I don't really have words sometime to express how this class hits me. It makes me want to dance with a sort of inexpressible Joy.
