When The Sun Goes Down

“In nature, when the sun goes down and night falls, we no longer see the objects surrounding us, but we do see distant objects not visible during the day, such as the stars, which are thousands of light-years away. And the sun must hide that we may see them, that we may be able to glimpse the depths of the firmament. Analogously, during the night of the spirit we see much farther than during the luminous period preceding it; the inferior lights must be taken away from us in order that we may begin to see the heights of the spiritual firmament.”
~Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange
