Abstract

The article seeks a psychological analogy for the divine processions that is found within the order of grace itself. Hints from Lonergan's later writings are developed to yield an analogy that begins with the dynamic state of being in love with God. The analogy is compared with earlier variants of the psychological analogy, and suggestions are made as to how it can be developed. St Ignatius's times of election are appealed to in order to show how the earlier analogies are compatible with the one being suggested here.
