QuotationOne of the big graces of Holy Week came by surprise yesterday. External graces almost always do come that way, I mean the big ones, by surprise. Three books which I think must have been ordered for us by Dom Marie-Joseph arrived from Editions du Cerf. One by Louis Bouyer, Le Mystère Pascal [Paris, 1945], was precisely what I most needed and I began reading it before Vespers yesterday.
