Sample text

I do not know when I have read anything so stupendous and so completely contemporary. I felt like throwing away everything and reading nothing but Aeschylus for six months. Like discovering a mountain full of diamond mines. It is like Zen—like Dostoevsky—like existentialism—like Francis—like the New Testament. It is inconceivably rich. I consider this a great grace. A great religious experience. Prometheus, archetypal representation of the suffering Christ. But we must go deep into this.

Solitude means withdrawal from an artificial and fictional level of being which men, divided by original sin, have fabricated in order to keep peace with concupiscence and death. But by that very fact the solitary finds himself on the level of a more perfect spiritual society—the city of those who have become real enough to confess and glorify God (that is, life) in the teeth of death.

The result does not matter. I have something to do for Him and, if I do that, everything else will follow. For the moment, it consists of prayer— thought—study, and above all care to form the South American postulants as He brings them to Gethsemani. 159–60 12 j a n ua r y 1 3 Unlearning All Tension in Solitude There is one thing I must do here at my woodshed hermitage, Saint Anne’s (and may I one day live here and do it all day long), and that is to prepare for my death. But that means a preparation in gentleness.
