Item Description...
"I have found Catherine's poetry a satisfying form of spiritual reading which leads me gently to the prayer of contemplation." Father John Catoir

Publishers Description
Thomas Merton wrote to Catherine de Vinck back in 1966, "You have a wonderful Blake-like response to the sacred world". And Cornelia Jessey Sussman expressed these sentiments about her poetic gift: "...perhaps there are only three or four every century... given the gift to voice the eternal vision, to put into words what we know cannot be put into words. Like the sun breaking through the clouds of a dark frozen winter sky, such poets bring the good news that winter is not forever". Poetry is more than language; it transcends what it signifies and enables us to see beyond the existing order. The poet is the primary mediator between God and creature, teaching us that truth cannot be reduced to abstract reason or philosophical formulas. "God is not of this world, though He dwells in it", Father John Catoir writes in his Introduction to this volume. "He belongs more to the order of poetry. We can only speak of our Maker in images that transcend the present moment. We feel there is something beyond all that we see, something we can never conceive or imagine. I have found Catherine's poetry a satisfying form of spiritual reading which leads me gently to the prayer of contemplation".
