On Saint Dionysios because of…
I am so bold, Dionysios, as to say
that you were not born from a woman’s womb,
but that you had a place among the angels
and came down from heaven, an alien nature,
to proclaim to mortals in every detail
the immaterial ranks, the nature of each.
This is how you know the immaterial beings;
this is how you contemplate divine contemplations;
this is how you reveal the natures of the angels;
this is how, above all, you too are an angel.
