QuotationAlready a most beautiful week of May has gone by. For part of it I was ill again, with the same bug that had me in the infirmary at the beginning of Holy Week. It was a good thing, for this time Father Eudes gave me an antibiotic which seems to have cleared it up properly. Last time it really stayed with me (my stomach remained quite upset even though I was "well"). So for a couple of days I lay around in the warm green shade of the end room, with no desire for any food, and read Martin Ling's book which he sent me (Ancient Beliefs and Modern Superstitions), a good chunk of De Lubac's Exegèse medievale (Vol. 1) and the early part of Herbert Read's Green Child. The most exciting for me was De Lubac.
