Self-Surrender and Superabundance

Contemplative in the Mud

Jacques MaritainThis self-surrender demands proofs; the twisted and torn limbs of the martyrs, the bloody destruction of the great Victim on the cross, point out what kind. However, what is primarily necessary is the interior stripping indissolubly linked to charity: dispossession of the self; the remainders is, so to speak, added by way of superabundance.
Jacques Maritain (1882–1973)
