Anselm: knowing God in heaven

April 21, 2009
    Feast of Anselm, Abbot of Le Bec, Archbishop of Canterbury, Teacher, 1109

    I myself am convinced, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, complete in knowledge and competent to instruct one another.
    -- Romans 15:14 (NIV)

    Those blessed ones of thine... shall rejoice according as they shall love; and they shall love according as they shall know. How far they will know thee, Lord, then! and how much they will love thee!
    ... St. Anselm (1033-1109), Proslogium, or Discourse on the Existence of God, tr. Sidney N. Deane, Chicago: The Opencourt Publishing Co, 1903, p. 33 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Through Your grace, Lord, I grow daily in knowledge of You.
