The absence of the Lord is not an absence. Just believe, and the one who you do not see is with you.
The majesty of God surpasses by far our capacity for expression, because it is better to think of God than to talk of Him, and better is He still than what is thought.
(De Trinitate VII, 4,7)
All I ask in my prayer is to know God and the soul, that is what I want.
