Chapter Summary

Again, the Apostle spoke: The Light-Mind works Five Light-Wonders for the Elect. The first sign is the Wisdom that the Elect preaches and proclaims in all its forms, in all its kinds, and in all its places. The second is Faith, since after his preaching of Wisdom, he. . .the Wisdom preached and the others hear it and believe. The third is. . . . . . in his Wisdom by his preaching, with which he proclaims Peace to the assembly of his brothers. The fourth is Love, because he loves Wisdom and the brothers and sisters who sit in his presence. The fifth is the terrible Severity of Judgement, with which he separates those who have not received the hope of God. These Five Signs are established and perfected in him and perfect him so that he might become a spotless vessel and a priceless pearl forever and ever.
