ПОЕЗИЈА

Мирна као мрамор, хладна као сена,
Ти си бледо тихо девојче што снева.
Пусти песма других нека буде жена,
Што по нечистим улицама пева.

Ја не мећем на те ђинђуве са траком,
Него жуте руже у те косе дуге:
Буди одвећ лепа да се свиђаш сваком,
Одвећ горда да би живела за друге.

Буди одвећ тужна са сопствених јада,
Да би ишла икад да тешиш ко страда,
А чедна, да водиш гомиле што нагле.

И стој равнодушна, док око твог тела,
Место китњастог и раскошног одела,
Лебди само прамен тајанствене магле.

POESIE

Calme comme le marbre, froide comme une ombre,
Tu es une jeune fille pâle, rêveuse ;
Que la poésie des autres soit une femme,
Qui chante dans les rues souillées.

Je ne te pare point de faux bijoux enrubannés,
Mais je mets des roses jaunes dans tes longs cheveux ;
Sois trop belle pour plaire à chacun,
Trop altière pour vivre pour les autres.

Sois trop affligée de tes propres chagrins
Pour vouloir consoler ceux qui souffrent,
Trop chaste pour mener les foules qui se hâtent.

Sois impassible, tandis qu’autour de ton corps,
Au lieu du costume barriolé, somptueux,
Flotte un halo solitaire de brume mystérieuse.

The One and the Many

Studies of God, Man, the Church, and the World today

by Metropolitan John D. Zizioulas

This volume offers a collection of Zizioulas articles which have appeared mostly in English, and which present his trinianatarian doctrine of God, as well as his theological account of the Church as the place in which freedom and communion are actualized. The title, The One and the Many, suggests the idea of a profound relationship that exists between the Persons in the Holy Trinity, between Christ and the Church, between one Catholic Church and many catholic Churches. On each of these levels of communion, each one is called to receive from one another and indeed to receive one another. And while this is understandable at the Triadological and Christological levels, it raises all sorts of fundamental ecclesiological questions, since the highest point of unity in this context is both the mutual ecclesial-eucharistic recognition and agreement on doctrine and canonical-eccelesiological organization.
