Advent Wisdom 2




There should be in the soul halls of space, avenues of leisure, and high porticos of silence, where God walks’.

(Jeremy Taylor)


….and ‘to know’

rather consists in opening out a way

(Robert Browning)


What is called for is not intense concentration, with a knitting of the brows, but, rather, the opposite, an awakening of the mind without fixing it anywhere, the quietness of pure attention… our minds unclouded by egoistical emotions, and so made more aware of God Himself.

(Dom Aelred Graham)
