The Melanic Heaven

Now this is what the holy Claretta spoke concerning the Melanic Heaven: The Melanic Heaven is as they say a false heaven, and yet, the holy Claretta said, having discovered it, having attained, it is not wrong if one desires to tarry there awhile; for indeed, one's tarrying is part of the Great Work of Maratrea, by which she brings about the union of all souls. For she whose knowledge is perfect loves ignorance, and the ignorance of this heaven is to some exceedingly pleasurable; she wishes not to deny them this pleasure, until they have had their fill of it.
