|I had been reading Dom Leclercq's new book L'Amour des lettres et le Desir de Dieu which is very fine, and I spent most of the time in a meditatio of psalms 85 and 86 saying them over and over by heart in the depths of my being. These were the ones I have recited scores of times before without ever seeing them.How long it takes us to discover some of the psalms.
