Perusing Romano Guardini’s The Rosary of Our Lady on the Third Glorious Mystery I found this little gem…
Her life must have been ineffable in its tranquility.
Guardini, Romano. The Rosary of Our Lady. (Trans. H. von Schuecking). New York: P.J. Kenedy & Sons, 1955, p. 85.
When the Holy Ghost descended on the disciples, he equipped them for their mighty work. When at the same time he came to Mary, her work was already accomplished. All that remained to do for her was to bring her fuller understanding. From them on she must have lived in ineffable clarity, in indescribable peace.
Wow! Twice on one page! I understood them, too!!
"Ineffable" wasn’t tooo haaard after all.
I think I should start a subcategory called "Ineffabilis". People could post citations when they run into particularly apt uses of "ineffable".
And then we can explain them to Joe and Mary Catholic.
