Your eyes are as a flame, but our brothers have neither hope nor fire. Your mouth is cut of granite, but our brothers are soft and humble. Your head is high, but our brothers cringe. You walk, but our brothers crawl. We wish to be damned with you, rather than blessed with all our brothers. Do as you please with us, but do not send us away from you.
Friendship exhibits a glorious "nearness by resemblance" to heaven itself where the very multitude of the blessed (which no man can number) increases the fruition which each has of god. for every soul, seeing him in her own way, doubtless communicates that unique vision to all the rest. that, says an old author, is why the seraphim in isaiah's vision are crying "holy, holy, holy" to one another (isaiah vi, 3). the more we thus share the heavenly bread between us, the more we shall all have.
