The Pearl of Great Value

DF950699-E052-46A2-AE3D-AC9BC728A997

 

On a certain day a pearl did I take up.

I saw in it mysteries pertaining to the Kingdom;

it became a fountain.

 

and I drank out of it mysteries of the Christ.

I put it upon the palm of my hand

that I might examine it.

 

In its brightness I beheld the Bright One

Who cannot be clouded…

– Ephraim the Syrian
