The Root, the Rod and the Flower By Coventry Patmore
eBook (ePub): $15.95
In similar fashion, as Bernard of Clairvaux, and many others after, Patmore’s mantra: “I only report the cry which certain ‘babes in Christ’ have uttered : ‘Taste and... More > see that the Lord is sweet’.” Has been fulfilled , albeit in part, within this text.

I make no ridiculous pretence of invading the province of a theologian by dogma. This I am content with implicitly; my work being mainly that of the Poet, bent only upon discovering and reporting how the “loving hint” of doctrine has “met the longing guess” of the souls of those who have so believed in the Unseen that it has become visible.< Less
