The anchor of meaning resides in an abyss, deeper than the reach of despair. Yet the abyss is not not infinite; its bottom may suddenly be discovered within the confines of a human heart or under the debris of might doubts. This may be the vocation of man: to say "Amen" to being and to the Author of being; to live in defiance of absurdity, notwithstanding futility and defeat; to attain faith in God even in spite of God.abraham joshua heschel

It is known that Judaic, Christian, and Islamic worshippers announce “Amen” at the end of a prayer , supplication , expression of thanks and praise , and even sing “Amen, Amen, Amen”. Yet few of these worshippers know that Amen was the greatest Egyptian God for over two thousand years before the birth of Jesus .
