Manual From Contemplation to Ecstasy
Removed from time and space, this ecstatic pendulum exists in a perpetual, eternal, and unified consummation. In contrast, for the lovers in Tristan, time and space are painfully evident, especially in the threatening return of daylight and discovery in Act Two and the distance separating the lovers in Act Three; hence the feverish irresolution of the music. In the heavenly vision that the Benediction strives to capture there can be no sin and death has lost its sting; hence the absence of chromatic harmony.
The Benediction is a work celebrating the love affair between a soul and God; solitude, not as a denial of love, but as a concentrated immersion in the life of God who is Love. In this way, the idea of solitude sheds its negative connotations. The heart, free from an attachment to the particular, can love the All.
Absent is any sense of loneliness, for this is not a turning inward to escape from people or reality but a joyous stretching outward to God, and from Him to others.

When Liszt had completed the Benediction in he was at a crucial turning point in his life. All seemed filled with optimism: a new life with Princess Carolyn; serious musical ideas brimming over, with time to explore them; the challenge of moving to Weimar with his plan to make it a new Athens where artistic life could flourish; and, to keep all this together, his rediscovered Catholic faith. His final years were filled with disillusionment and depression.
The initial conversion and discovery of God in prayer is usually a period of great joy and consolation. As a person grows in the spiritual life these delights gradually disappear, leaving the soul in what seems like darkness.

This is not because God has deserted the person, but rather because He wants to draw him closer to Himself, helping the soul to seek and love God rather than His gifts. This period of aridity can last for years, although it is seldom without some respite, and further progress in prayer depends largely on the generosity of abandonment and love we offer God during this time of refining.
But perhaps at the end of his life, after so many years of disappointment and difficulty, still clinging tenaciously to his faith, Liszt could echo the following words of the Carmelite, St. I give thanks to Jesus for making me walk in darkness, and in the darkness I enjoy profound peace[ — ]I am content, nay full of joy, to be without all consolation.
I should be ashamed if my love were like that of earthly brides who are ever looking for gifts from their bridegrooms, or seeking to catch the smile which fills them with delight. America's Criminal Justice System is in Disarray. Crisis Magazine is a project of Sophia Institute Press.
Not an ordinary pizza-boy greeting. It turns out that he killed his sister, her husband and their young son -- slit their throats with a knife.
Vaguely biblical. The other characters are taken aback. Then Bob not bobrauschenberg as a youth, we presume plunges into a long, gory reflection on what he did but assures everyone that he has forgiven himself. His tone is hesitantly passive-aggressive, full of uh's and phrase repetitions, all dutifully noted in the script. By this point the others are thoroughly spooked.
When Bob flares up, thinking he may not be paid for his pizza, they thrust money upon him.
When he asks how to get out, they all point as one. We should not assume that anyone thinks triple murders are funny. What lends the text its edge is the juxtaposition of folksy, sometimes cutesy riffs with the off-kilter menace of Bob, and with our knowledge that triple murders do happen.
For Bob, some of the credit should go to the director, Ms. Bogart, and a lot more to the young actor who played him. He is in the third generation of a Manhattan acting family, but has not heretofore attracted copious notices. Yet he perfectly catches Bob's eerie singsong detachment.

Allie 62 books view quotes. I So I might seize the prey in this divine venture I flew ever higher from sight was forced to stray, yet love so far did fly that though in my flight I faltered in the height I caught the prey on high.
II As higher I ascended so the hardest conquest came about in darkness, all my sight was dazzled: yet since love was my prey from blind dark a leaper I flew on ever higher till I overtook the prey. I sank down lower, lower, yet I rose higher, higher and so I took the prey. IV My one flight in strange manner surpassed a hundred thousand for the hope of highest heaven attains the end it hopes for: there hope alone did fly unfaltering in the height: hope, seeking in its flight, I caught the prey on high.
I That fount eternal is a hidden thing. How well I know where its waters spring, though it is night! II Its source I know not since it has none, and yet every source from it does come, though it is night. III I know that nothing is as beautiful, of it earth and heaven there drink full, though it is night.

IV I know that it is endlessly deep, that none across those depths may leap, though it is night. V Its clarity will never be obscured, I know all light there has its source, though it is night. VI I know its streams so greatly swell it waters earth, and heaven, and hell, though it is night.
VII The flood that flows from out this spring, I know is full, and conquers everything, though it is night. VIII The flood that from these two proceeds I know that neither its deep flood exceeds, though it is night. IX And this eternal fountain is concealed, in the living bread our life to yield, though it is night. X Here it cries aloud to every creature, to drink of it, though dark its nature, for it is night.
XI That living fount that I desire, within the bread of life, I now admire, though it is night.
A Gloss with Spiritual Meaning With no aid, yet with every aid, without light, in darkness truly, I see myself swallowed wholly. I My soul is now severed from each created thing, raised on its own wing to a life of joy forever, God alone succouring.
