Divine Energy

“Grace is an energy; not a mere sentiment; not a mere thought of the Almighty; not even a word of the Almighty. It is as real an energy as the energy of electricity. It is a divine energy; it is the energy of the divine affection rolling in plenteousness toward the shores of human need.” -Benjamin Jowett (1817-1893)


  1. This reminds me of the idea of Simone Weil about Grace in Gravity and Grace.

  2. Thank you for the comment. I'm not sure I understand the connection between 'Grace in Gravity and Grace' and my posting, grace as divine energy.

    Interesting, I see you have postings about Teilhard. Because of Teilard's influence on Thomas Berry I have a great interest.
