            GOD SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF THE GREATEST MINDS (Click on title for information)


"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 God’s.
(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)
