Legion for Legion…

*

Among cultivated people the lives of the saints

are an unpopular form of literature.

This is not surprising.

Cultivated people foster an appetite for novelty,

diversiry and distraction.

The saints are invariably pre-occupied with one subject –

Spiritual Reality, and the means of coming to know that Reality.

Their actions are uniform, they behave selflessly, patiently and with charity.

Is it any wonder that the biographies of such men and women remain unread?

In the whole catalogue of epic, drama, and the novel there are few,

if any representations of the saints.

 

We'd love to hear from you...
