In his book, The Splendor of Creation, the Rev. Joseph Iannuzzi refers to it as "A New State of Mystical Union." Dr. Iannuzzi is a theologian and author of four books on mystical and dogmatic theology. He has lectured internationally on the gift of the Divine Will. He calls it the "eternal mode" of mystical contemplation. I have been wondering how this eternal mode relates to what Abbot Thomas Keating calls "The Night of Self." Do any of my readers have any ideas on this subject?
