Description
Summary:The divinization of our activities -- The undoubted existence of the fact and the difficulty of explaining it : the Christian problem of the sanctification of action -- An incomplete solution : human action has no value other than the intention which directs it -- The final solution : all endeavor cooperates to complete the world "in Christo Jesu" -- At the heart of our universe, each soul exists for God, in our Lord -- But all reality, even material reality, around each one of us exists for our souls -- Hence, all sensible reality around each one of us exists, through our souls, for God in our Lord -- Communion through action -- The Christian perfection of human endeavor -- The sanctification of human endeavor -- The humanization of christian endeavor -- Detachment through action -- The divinization of our passivities -- The extent, depth, and diverse forms of human passivities -- The passivities of growth and the two hands of God -- The passivities of diminishment -- Our struggle with god against evil -- Our apparent failure and its transfiguration -- Communion through diminishment -- True resignation -- Some general remarks on Christian asceticism -- Attachment and detachment -- First, develop yourself, Christianity says to the Christian and if you possess something, Christ says in the Gospel, leave it and follow me -- Thus, in the general rhythm of Christian life, development and renunciation, attachment and detachment are not mutually exclusive -- The meaning of the Cross -- The spiritual power of matter -- The divine milieu -- The attributes of the divine milieu -- The nature of the divine milieu, the universal Christ, and the Great Communion -- The growth of the divine milieu -- The coming of the divine milieu : the taste for being and the diaphany of God -- Individual progress in the divine milieu : purity, faith, and fidelity, the operatives -- The collective progress of the divine milieu : the communion of saints and charity
