Obscure and Transluminous, Death and Life

Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange Infused contemplation is obscure because it is superior both to every sensible image and to every distinct idea. This state of transluminous obscurity… is very difficult to describe, for it is entirely supernatural and surpasses all expression. In it is something akin to a death of the understanding, which in reality is an incomparably superior new life, the true prelude to the life of heaven.
Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange OP (1877–1964)
