Experiences of Blaise Pascal
found after Pascal's death:
year of grace 1654, Monday, 23 November, day of St.
Clement, Pope and Martyr. From about half-past ten
in the evening until about half-past twelve, FIRE.
God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob, not of
the philosophers nor of the Wise. Assurance, joy,
assurance, feeling, joy, peace...Just Father, the
world has not known thee but I have known thee. Joy,
joy, joy, tears of joy."
