God comes as Guest

Light of truth

“The holy is what approaches as it withdraws, what has been and endures futurally, what must be secured in its enduring by means of a poetic founding. The festival to which the gods come as guests and at which the true element upon which humans can depend occurs and is grounded in the distance of its nearness. The festival sent by the holy is the origin of history. The poet grounds history when, by naming the holy, he founds that enduring upon which a historical humanity dwells as its “ground.”

Martin Heidegger
