"Quia per incarnati Verbi mysterium, nova mentis nostrae oculis lux thrae claritatis infulsit: ut dum visibiliter Deum cognoscimus, per hunc in invisibilium amorem rapiamur."
"Because by the mystery of the Incarnate Word the new light of Thy brightness hath shone upon the eyes of our mind: that we, knowing God seen of the eyes, by Him may be snatched up into the love of that which eye hath not seen."
via Evelyn Underhill
"We should elude much enfeebling spiritual worry, and proportionately increase our effective contribution to the world's redemption if we kept more steadily in mind the patent fact of our own limited knowledge: that the richness and splendour of the spiritual universe which surrounds and penetrates our narrow universe of sense is mostly unperceived by us as we are now. It is true that as spirits anchored to this world yet belonging to that, we do already live within that spiritual universe. But like new-born kittens, our eyes are not yet opened to our situation; we can only vaguely recognize the touch upon the fur." - Evelyn Underhill
A wee explanation: this website was created as a way to amplify the daily surprise of seeing glory in one small life. The notebook entries represented here are all selected from things actually lived and noted on paper in an effort to live the full life British educator Charlotte Mason so ably championed.
