SIMONE WEIL

 

 

     "If we really love God, we necessarily think of Him as being, amongst other things, the soul of the world; for love is always connected with a body, and God has no other body which is offered to our senses except the universe itself. Then each occurrence, whatever it may be, is like a touch on the part of God; each even, each thing that takes place, whether it be fortunate, unfortunate or unimportant from our particular point of view, is a caress of Godís.
(Weil, 1956, 322)
 

      "We should give God the strict minimum of place in our lives, that which it is absolutely impossible for us to refuse Him-and earnestly desire that one day, and as soon as possible, that strict minimum may become all."
(Ibid, 326)
