What is commensurate?

22 February 2023

What’s more beautiful than a soul that mourns, in the knowledge that, if it’s patient, it’ll inherit the joy of all? What’s more bold than a broken and contrite heart which effortlessly puts to flight the hordes of demons and routs them entirely? What’s more glorious than the spiritual poverty, which is a herald of the kingdom of heaven? And what can be commensurate to spiritual poverty, now or in the age to come?
