Freedom

In an important book, Dom Dysmas de Lassus, the current prior of La Grande Chartreuse, asks:

‘Isn’t this one of the most surprising aspects of the spiritual life: the ever fuller discovery of the extent to which God, for being our creator, is free in our regard from any desire to assume power and control?’

The extent of our freedom!

You can find a discussion of Dom Dysmas’s book, which analyses what may happen when freedom is put to bad use, here.
