Commentary on the Book of Genesis
The Word of God is the food that the Holy Spirit grants to the Church of Christ, so that she may live perpetually renovated in her spiritual youth, without undergoing the incapacities of old age, or perishability. In the past few years, my good Lord allowed me to study the word of God; in the same way the Fathers of the early Church experienced it, as spirit and life. I began to write some of the meditations and interpretations practiced by those Fathers, in the hope that we, also, may live through the spirit and belief of the early Church; enjoying the Holy Spirit through the word of God, alive and active in us, until it elevates us to our heavenly Groom “the divine Word,” who will come on the clouds, to bestow on us His glories, and bring us into the bosom of His Father, to abide with Him eternally in His heavens.
However, in my interpretation, if I did not commit to the sequence of the books as they come in the Holy Bible; it is just because I did not intend to author a comprehensive series of interpretations, but I aspired to enter, with every soul, into the secret place of the Word, and to enjoy Him as the eternal Groom, who fills the heart, the mind and all the inner depths.
