"I no longer knew anything." Spiritual Canticle Stanza 26

Posted on May 10, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

She(the soul) takes little part in the affairs of others, for she is not even mindful of her own.

This is characteristic of God’s spirit in the soul:
He gives her an immediate inclination toward
ignoring and not desiring knowledge of the affairs of others,
especially that which brings her no benefit.

God’s spirit is turned toward the soul to draw her away from
external affairs rather than involve her in them.
Thus she remains in an unknowing, in the manner she was accustomed to.

—-St. John of the Cross–pray for us,

Blessed Damien Joseph–pray for us.
St. Caterina di Ricci– pray for us.
all you Holy Saints, and Angels–pray for us.
Immaculate Mother of God–pray for us.

Because my heart was inflamed, my reins were also changed, and I was brough to nothing and knew not. (Psalm 73:21-11)
