Table of Contents for this Work

There is a grace called infused contemplation, which, according to many excellent theologians, is a normal part of the spiritual life. It comes at the end of the first of the three ways or stages in the spiritual life, namely, at the end of the Purgative Way. In it, a soul does not see any vision or hear any sounds, but seems to perceive the presence of God, even a sort of contact with God, although it is not basically in the sphere of feeling. There may or may not be feelings of warmth accompanying it. Now because of her surpassing union with God, if God is perceived infused contemplation, then, if He so wills, she can be perceived too. There are many cases on record of this. For further data cf. Our Father's Plan, chapter 22.
