Alyosha Karamazov - Gunnar Björling

The kiss of Christ is set above the world. And you realise:
this was — was all! The power of sacrifice, a kiss. And longing of all struggles, kiss: nothing but radiant gentleness. And day, made fertile!
There was nothing but a kiss.

Gunnar Björling (1887 - 1960) Finland
Translated by David McDuff
