God’s light sets fire to the spirit of man

“As a magnifying glass concentrates the rays of the sun into a little burning knot of heat that can set fire to a dry leaf or a piece of paper, so the mystery of Christ in the Gospel concentrates the rays of God’s light and fire to a point that sets fire to the spirit of man.”  ~Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation, Pg. 150
