He rightfully enjoys throughout Holy Mother, the Church, not only the title of Doctor of Mystical Theology but also the reputation of being a most august and excellent mystagogue among all of the Churchs mystics. The key to our Holy Fathers mysticism is the cross of Christ with its triune cruciformity. The vertical beam embraces the eternal/temporal order of the universes existence- the horizontal beam spans the historical order of the worlds resistance beginning with the Book of Genesis and the worlds future end culminating eschatologically in the Last Judgment. The third order is the crosss cruciformity consistently reconciling these two vertical and horizontal beams together in the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christs crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, and Parousia, final return in glory.
