Pascal: knowledge

Friday, September 7, 2018
    Commemoration of Douglas Downes, Founder of the Society of Saint Francis, 1957
    You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.
    —James 2:19 (ESV)
    The knowledge of God is very far from the love of Him.
    ... Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), Pensées (Thoughts) [1660], P.F. Collier & Son, 1910, #280, p. 99 (see the book)
    See also Jas. 2:19; Matt. 8:29; Mark 1:24; 5:7; Luke 4:34; Acts 19:5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, with knowledge, increase my love for You.
