An Interlocutory Thank you

"They do not at all doubt that the saints of the active life have had normally rather frequent infused contemplation of the mysteries of the redeeming Incarnation, of the Mass, of the mystical body of Christ, of the value of eternal life, although these saints differ from pure contemplatives in this respect, that their infused contemplation is more immediately ordained to action, to all the works of mercy." (The Three Ages of the Interior Life | Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, OP | Catholic Spiritual Teaching)

Time has passed since I promised a reader from Canada that I would give St. John of the Cross another chance by reading The Ascent of Mount Carmel and since I promised a reader from Poland that I would dedicate time to The Three Ages of the Interior Life.

I have my notes on The Ascent of Mount Carmel, but only now am I getting into Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange. I beg therefore your indulgence and promise a review/reflection at some point during my vacation.

  1. That reader from Canada remains patiently waiting, pleased that you have, in fact, given St. John of the Cross another chance (and so soon).
