What is the meaning of Memory Eternal?- "...'to be remembered' by the Lord is the same thing as 'to be in Paradise.' 'To be in Paradise' is to be in eternal memory and, consequently, to have eternal existence and therefore an eternal memory of God. Without remembrance of God we die, but our remembrance of God is possible only through God’s remembrance of us." (quote from The Brothers Karamazov)
