Before the void

Grace fills empty spaces, but it can only enter where there is a void to receive it, and it is grace itself which makes this void.

To love truth means to endure the void and, as a result, to accept death...

Whoever endures a moment of void either receives the supernatural bread or falls. It is a terrible risk but one that must run, even during the instant when hope fails. But we must not throw ourselves into it.
