Its Entire Being Takes on a Celestial Aspect

The soul, putting on what is divine, is, as it were, transformed and changed into God, as iron placed in the furnace receives the form of fire and is changed into fire… So the soul was cold before, but now it has become all inflamed; it was in darkness before, but now it shines; it was hard before, but now it has become soft. Its entire being takes on a celestial aspect, because its essence is all penetrated by the divine essence.
Louis de Blois OSB (1506–1566)
