But not only in this book full of mystical insight, I found myself very much taken by her penetrating insights into human nature, describing Pilate as "the weak and timid civil servant" and seeing the "aesthetic sense" as "a kind of deeply buried inherited memory of innocence, like an old man's memory of his nursery".
This is a wonderfully practical non-sentimental/non-treacle understanding of the Blessed Virgin's role in salvation history. But this does not mean it is not devotional - it is in the right sense so much that one is almost startled by what Houselander draws from the simple fact of Mary's motherhood: "He was completely her own, utterly dependent upon her: she was His food and warmth and rest, His shelter from the world, His shade in the Sun. She was the shrine of the Sacrament, the four walls and the roof of His home".Read more ›
and wisdom. A tremendous reading and learning
incredible, insightful and clear thinking in faith. Sometimes I just
have to sit with her idea or images to grasp her interior spiritual maturity which
is far beyond mine and takes me to new joys and hope and freedom in faith.
