Good and Evil

I found this quote over at the Eastern Orthodox blog, Glory to God for all Things, (whose author was formerly a contributor of 'Pontifications'). I don't know the source, though it sounds very Lewis-esque to me...

Good and Evil
I think evil is always small, and that good is infinite. Evil closes itself to God and thus becomes even smaller; Good opens itself to God and thus becomes infinite. Evil cannot become so large as to fill even the universe. God became so small that He could fill Hell and then burst it asunder because it could not contain Him. Every good deed will have eternal remembrance, but even the largest deeds of the evil will be forgotten.
