Today is the Feast of All Saints of the Benedictine Order.
' Scripture brought me to the gate of Paradise and the mind, which is spiritual, stood in amazement and wonder as it entered, the intellect grew dizzy and weak as the senses were no longer able to contain its treasures - so magnificent they were - or to discern its savours and find any comparison for its colours, or take in its beauties so as to describe them in words.'
 (1st paragraph from the Hymns of Paradise VI by St Ephrem of Syria)
