Correspondance (1908-1953). Braises ardentes, semences de feu

Автор: Massignon Louis

De 1908, année de la «conversion» de Louis Massignon (1883-1962), à 1953, deux avant la mort de Paul Claudel (1868-1955), les deux hommes ont échangé une belle et profonde correspondance, qui touche aux choses essentielles de l’esprit, du cœur et de l’âme, pour l’un comme pour l’autre indissociables. Une partie de ces lettres, celles de la première période (1908-1914), avait déjà été publiée en 1973. Il était cependant regrettable de voir cette correspondance arbitrairement interrompue, et, de surcroît, amputée, du fait de nombreuses coupures, de son intérêt intime et puissamment spirituel. Toutes les lettres retrouvées sont ici restituées dans leur intégralité, mettant au jour la «passion» intérieure de Massignon, être calciné, et la sagesse parfois quelque peu interloquée de son aîné, toujours patiente et compatissante, sauf quand le poison de la politique vint, dans les derniers temps, gravement affecter sans pourtant la ruiner une amitié fondée sur une confiance absolue et de douloureuses confidences. Mais même la politique est ici, à sa manière, une sphère du spirituel. Le face-à-face épistolaire de Claudel et Massignon, c’est aussi celui du poète et de l’érudit, le premier cherchant à si’nstruire dans le domaine de l’orientalisme, le second lui livrant, pêle-mêle mais dans une étonnante cohérence intérieure, le résultat de ses recherches, ses méditations, ses innombrables pérégrinations savantes qui étaient autant de pèlerinages, ses lieux de prédilection et tout le réseau des «intersignes» qui assurent l’unité de ces curieuses expériences. Ils se rencontrent dans l’acceptation commune d’une vie réglée par la prière, la liturgie, la direction et les exercices spirituels; la «Coopérative de prières» fondée par Claudel, et qui trouvera une prolongation spécifique dans la «badaliya» de Massignon, les réunit autour de la haute figure sacerdotale de l’abbé Fontaine, qui fut le dernier confesseur de Huysmans. Une commune piété mariale nourrit leurs échanges, mais aussi leurs œuvres et le subtil système analogique qui les régit.

FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast — recently returned to New York — and Lieutenant Vincent d’Agosta find themselves investigating the murder of a friend when reporter William Smithback and his wife Nora are brutally attacked in their apartment. The assailant is identified by eyewitnesses as their strange, sinister neighbour — a man who, by all accounts, died ten days earlier. Shunning the official inquiry, Pendergast and d’Agosta undertake their own private — and unorthodox — quest for the truth. Their journey takes them deep into the dark and mysterious underbelly of Manhattan, to a secretive, reclusive cult of Obeah and voodoo which no outsiders have ever survived.

After dinner we turned the lights out and played ‘hide-and-seek’. In the dark, I touched a hand, a very cold hand. Now, because of the game, I had to hide in the dark with… with this cold person — not speaking, not knowing who it was. Slowly the others found us, hid with us, until we were all there — all thirteen. Thirteen? But there were only twelve people in the house!
We touched each other in the dark, counting. Thirteen. Quickly, nervously, I lit a match to see…
