The Richest Quarry

'The richest quarry of prayer-material is obviously revelation itself; nothing can teach us more about the presence of God than the inspiration of God… 

'The arrested progress of certain souls may well be accounted for by their lack of interest in the scriptures… or perhaps such souls have studied, but studied in the wrong way. If we study academically we can hardly hope to profit spiritually…. 

'Study, even of divine things, must be kept in its place; it is a means, not an end.'

Dom Hubert Van Zeller, The Yoke of Divine Love, Templegate, Springfield IL, 1957, p. 139

Painting: Rembrandt
