What are the dimensions of the house of God?

God who wants me as His unique and holy sanctuary,

in which He wants to dwell, and in which all heavenly and earthly rational creatures find their pleasure.

He forms my inner man by the following dimensions:
The height: to attain heaven itself,

so that I would dwell in Him and He dwells in me.

The length: as if my soul has no especial place in this world, wherever I am I feel I’m in my Father’s land.

The width: God’s desire that my heart be widened to embrace all men if it is possible.

The size: The kingdom of God is within me.

It embraces the heavenly hosts by love.

The proportions: It is an icon of heaven.

Father Tadros Yacoub
