Musings : Thomas Kelly 1893-1941

"The basic response of the soul to the Light is internal adoration and joy, thanksgiving and worship, self-surrender and listening.  The secret places of the heart cease to be our noisy workshop.  They become a holy sanctuary of adoration and self-oblation, where we are kept in perfect peace, if our minds be stayed on Him who has found us in the inward sprints of our life.  And in brief intervals of overpowering visitation we are able to carry the santuary frame of mind out into the world, into it's turmoil and its fitfulness, and in a hyperaesthesia of the soul, we see all mankind tinged with deeper shadows, and touched with Galilean glories."
