Lorenzo Scupoli on how enjoying food helps us appreciate God.
If you’re like me you love food—I like to cook, and I certainly like to eat good meals. But Lorenzo Scupoli gives us the secret for truly appreciating what we eat:
When you eat or drink, reflect that it is God, Who gives all food a taste which pleases us. So, delighting in Him alone, say: ‘Rejoice, O my soul, for, although you can find no satisfaction, delight or comfort in anything outside God, you can know Him and cleave to Him, and can find every delight in Him alone, as David invites, saying: ‘O taste and see that the Lord is good’’ (Psalm 34:8).
"Your podcasts and broadcasts have hugely facilitated my development and growth in understanding of Orthodoxy. I do not think that I would have found my spiritual home without your role. I am more grateful to you all than can be expressed in words."
