Abundant and Soon

Reginald Garrigou-LagrangeWe must not forget that God calls all interior souls to drink from the fountain of living water, where they will find life in abundance, even beyond their desires, “that they may have life, and may have it more abundantly” (Jn 10:10). According to the saints, the soul which, for the love of God, labours to strip itself of all that is not God, is soon penetrated with light and so united to God that it becomes like Him and enters into the possession of all His goods.
Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange OP (1877–1964)
