The Beginning of Contemplation

Father Garrigou-LagrangeIt is no longer the soul recollecting itself; it is God who recollects it and draws it toward the inner sanctuary. This is the beginning of contemplation; it is infused [by God], since we cannot procure it for ourselves by our own activity aided by grace.
Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange OP (1877–1964)
