This Week's Highlights

“Faith effects the indwelling, charity the strengthening and stabilizing. It is only on this basis that Christians will be able to grasp what the saints grasp: the cosmic reaches of the mystery of unity achieved by the Crucified – of heaven and earth, of Jew and Gentile.  Behind it and beyond it, the key to it all, is Christ’s love, which they will know with a contemplative, experiential and ever-widening knowledge, but never completely circumscribe, for it is beyond knowledge.”

George Montague in Growth in Christ
