Don’t hold onto the old man, the world; don’t refuse to regain your youth in Christ, who says to you: “The world is passing away; the world is losing its grip, the world is short of breath. ” Though no one has ever been more insistent on the need for purity, equally no one has ever been less of a Puritan in the pejorative sense. Everything in creation delighted Augustine. He spoke to his congrega tion of the gloriously changing colors of the Mediterranean, which he had so often observed. All created things should be loved, he insisted, because God made them.
The Christian faith performs this miracle of humbling the greatest minds and proudest spirits – and when was there a greater mind or prouder spirit than Pascal’s? – so that they may experience even before dying the joy of losing themselves in the great throng gathered round God’s throne. Later, controversies arose as to the attitude Pascal had to the Church on his deathbed, and about his mental and physical condition. I cannot myself see that either point was particularly material. We know that he ardently sought the consolations the Church has to offer to the dying, and that the eminent doctors who attended him more than lived up to the reputation for incompetence that Pascal’s contemporary, the French writer Molière, was to give them in his comedies.
How often, pacing its streets, have I found his words echoing in my mind: I wander thro’ each charter’d street, Near where the charter’d Thames does flow, And mark in every face I meet Marks of weakness, marks of woe. In every cry of every Man, In every Infant’s cry of fear, In every voice, in every ban, The mind-forg’d manacles I hear. How the Chimney-sweeper’s cry Every black’ning Church appalls; And the hapless Soldier’s sigh Runs in blood down Palace walls. But most thro’ midnight streets I hear How the youthful Harlot’s curse Blasts the new born Infant’s tear, And blights with plagues the Marriage hearse.
