“The communion which holy souls have with God consists in their having an eye of faith towards him, as a God that has an eye of favour towards them. The intercourse is kept up by the eye.”
Concerning my provision of Amazon links in posts: Though Amazon’s customer service remains outstanding, the respect for freedom of expression that helped make it an appealing company has begun to break down as it, like other corporations these days, has started using its corporate power to impose a uniform, degenerate, secular system of values on everyone. While refusing to do business with Amazon seems impractical if not impossible today if one doesn’t wish simply to overpay for everything one can’t find at Walmart, which also shows disrespect for some God-given rights, I do respect anyone who wishes to attempt it. If you are such a one, if you prefer not to obtain materials through Amazon, or if you just wish to save money, maybe a library in your area can help.
