Rise: The Great Fifty Days 26


If you were as sinless as Adam was before the fall, you would be in total control of each instant. You would respond to every divine impulse. Everything about you would reach toward God all the time, because God created us in his image. In the Incarnation, Christ emptied himself, becoming one of us, accommodating himself to our limitations. Only God satisfies our spiritual hunger. Nothing else suffices. After God graciously transforms our soul, we begin perceiving what is ordinarily beyond our comprehension. Angels don’t have the mental capacity, nor do we, to grasp the total reality of God, but what cannot be ours by intelligence can be ours as we embrace love.  The Cloud of Unknowing, Chapter 4
