If you desire

Blue Journal December 17, 2000

“If you desire to know how these things come about, ask grace, not instruction; desire, not understanding; the groaning of prayer, not diligent reading; the Spouse, not the teacher; God, not man; darkness, not clarity, not light, but the fire that totally inflames and carries us into God by ecstatic unctions and burning affections.”  (St. Bonaventure)
