24th January


Revealed truths about God display profound obscurity and necessary mysteries; grace itself can but give an initial and indistinct perception. This is the source of the great longing of saintly people: to see, through the broken veil, the beautiful face of God, amidst their constant prayers and meditations on their journey through the dark night when they feel it surrounds them. Christians in this present life walk in this darkness and in this light by a high decree of Divine Providence so that their merits may increase in the obscurity of faith, and their desire for the eternal light may become sharper so as to sustain and give value to their actions and expectations.

AS, I, p. 107
