When Zeal For God Consumes A Soul

When the soul's powers turn into the interior, down to the very roots of life, using the natural and supernatural means of perfection, then the soul confesses or truly acknowledges God, and does so in a manner full of feeling and spiritual enjoyment. This is an act of faith so true and living that it wins all that is born of faith. Its power is so great that proclaiming God in all sincerity absorbs the soul's entire life: interiorly, in the understanding and the will; outwardly, in every external human faculty; in deeds and words, in doing and refusing to do, and in all sufferings. A man now feels and knows nothing in act or in contemplation except the confessing of God in perfect truth. Father John Tauler, O.P. (From The Magnificat Daily Meditation)
