St. Didymus the Blind: Adam, Where Art Thou? (A Meditation)

Being the source of goodness, GOD, even after our failures, calls us anew, not effacing entirely from our mind the knowledge of good, even if we have turned away from virtue through sin. This is what GOD, at present, also does for Adam in calling him although he has hidden himself, saying to him: "Adam, where art thou?" Adam, in fact, had been placed there by GOD for the purpose of working and guarding Paradise; he had received this place from HIM to be his own. Having distanced hmself from there by disobedience, it is proper that he should hear from GOD: "Where art thou?" --St. Didymus the Blind
