QuotationThere Dom Godefroid [Belorgey]'s Chapters in the morning generally have something in them to keep souls directed to contemplative prayer. This is good. One thing that struck me about Dom Godefroid's book [Pratique de l'oraison mentale (Paris, 1945-46)] of which I read bits of the second volume on mystical prayer was that it seemed rather light and thin. But at least it issomething.
