In Wordless Contemplation There is Still a Word

Raïssa Maritain In wordless contemplation the Credo is always there, in the depth of the soul. And one can say that it is in its light and its power that the soul passes to a knowledge or experience which proceeds from faith and from the union of love, and in which all concepts are silent (then the light of faith passes through them without awakening them, or while scarcely stirring them, so as to go toward the Reality which is its object, and which it makes the soul suffer through love, under the inspiration of the gifts of the Spirit).
Raïssa Maritain (1883–1960)
