our nourisher and hope
The tree of life in the heart of paradise is Christ.
All men may know and approach this tree and find nourishment and feed on the Holy Spirit.
Saint Silouan the Athonite
What air is to the body, the spirit of God is to the soul.
As you breathe from the air the elements required to nourish your body, so likewise you breathe into yourself from the Spirit of God good inclinations and thoughts…
O Holy Trinity, our Nourisher and Hope!
St John of Kronstadt
