Love unites you to Christ

"When you have fallen in love with Christ, you prefer silence and spiritual prayer. Then words cease. It is inner silence that precedes, accompanies, and follows the divine visitation, the divine union and co-mingling of the soul with the divine.

"When you find yourself in this state, words are not needed. This is something you experience, something that cannot be explained. Only the person who experiences this state understands it.

"The sense of love floods through you and unites you with Christ. You are filled with joy and exultation, which shows that you have the divine, perfect love within you. Divine love is selfless, simple, and true."

St. Porphyrios the New, from his wonderful book, Wounded by Love.
