A Poet Reflects

"The mysteries of faith are degraded if they are made into an object of affirmation and negation, when in reality they should be an object of contemplation."
—Simone Weil, from “Intelligence and Grace” in Gravity and Grace (Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1952)
Painting: Shoshana Kertesz, Portrait of Simon Weil, n.d.
