On Union with God

Blessed Albert the Great (1193 - 1280)
Translated by Benedictine of Princethorpe Priory

Surely the most deeply-rooted need of the human soul, its purest aspiration, is for the closest possible union with God. As one turns over the pages of this little work, written by Blessed Albert the Great towards the end of his life, when that great soul had ripened and matured, one feels that here indeed is the ideal of one's hopes.
