Differently about Arsenie Boca as a role model (and, related, about the subtle order of the ritual)
The chosen human vocation is the subject of the author’s reflection in this essay. God chooses His confessors and seals them with the sign of the great vocation, telling them what they must do to ensure that the purpose of the nation is not forgotten. To His chosen one, God always gives certain greatness; and only he remains faithful till the end of time and finds his purpose in the secret depths of his own people. Without the hypostasis of the chosen man, we risk losing ourselves into the world, shocking the world and forgetting God. The chosen one must be the consciousness that saves us when ignorance is everywhere around us.
