Being in love with God

Just back from a workshop with Charles Hefling.

I asked him about 'being in love with God' in Lonergan's Method in Theology: does it include response or not?

His answer delighted me: he said Lonergan in Method was ambiguous on this point. He also said that this just might possibly have been deliberate, the reason being that 'response' questions are not phenomenological.

I asked whether he was clearer when he spoke in terms of operative and cooperative grace. He said Lonergan was doing indirect discourse there, so... and then said no, he was not completely clear. But he also said that in some of his unpublished Latin theology courses, he was far more abundant on the question than in Method.
