Evelation of mind to God and divine things, joined with a loving intuition of what is seen. It is the mind resting upon God and tasting the joys of his beatitude. although still in the realm of faith and not heavenly vision, it is an intuition of Divine Truth terminating in affection and love, excluding long reasonings and a multiplicity of words as found in affective prayer. St. Teresa speaks of it as God acting on the human mind in a special way.
