“The following week, I’m reading the end of Dante’s Divine Comedy, when Dante ascends the final level of paradise, the Empyrean, and with help from the Blessed Mother, he is able to gaze directly at God.
“Dante is dumbstruck, unable to describe in language what he saw, save that it propelled him into writing down the Divine Comedy:
“God’s love moves the Sun and Stars, but most importantly it moves our hardened hearts, in spite of the million little ways we try to keep it at arm’s length.” [. . .] –Michael J. Sanem, Incarnation is Everywhere, October 12, 2018.
