QuotationThis morning I began [Hans Urs] Von Balthasar's Herrlichkeit-a long book to try to read in German, but the first pages are very promising and I respond to them completely. Perhaps this is the theology we have been waiting for. And I was reminded also of my studies on the School of Chartres two years ago (looked briefly again at my notes. I must write them up).
