Anselm: knowing God in heaven

Saturday, April 21, 2018
    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), Discourse on the Existence of God, Chicago: The Opencourt Publishing Co, 1903, p. 33 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 15:14; Jer. 31:34; 1 John 4:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Through Your grace, Lord, I grow daily in knowledge of You.
