“Christ is the one who came in order to do what Adam did not do: to be the priest of creation...not just for the human being, although it was achieved through the human being. Christ came so that the whole world may live, and the human being may become that which he was meant to be when he was created by God, namely the priest of creation.” -Metropolitan John (Zizioulas) of Pergamon
Some Christians think the world is bad: that we need to escape our bodies and physical things.
But the spiritual life isn't just about the spirit. Matter matters. Our job isn't to abandon the physical world, but to save it.
And this is exactly what we see in the great feast of Theophany.
