Dear Dr. Jung, Dec. 11, 1946
I am extremely thankful to hear from Miss Schmid that you are now able to read.
I venture therefore to send you a few lines but refrain from saying all that I should like to do.
I need hardly tell you that you are very much in my thoughts and prayers at present, and, as I know, in those of very many other people in England too. . . .
Ever yours sincerely,
Victor White, O.P. ~Victor White, Jung-White Letters, Page 57.
Jung responded: on Dec. 18th, 1946:
Dear Father White,
Thank you for your dear letter.
It is a great consolation to know that one is included in the prayers of fellow beings.
The aspectus mortis (aspect of death) is a mighty lonely thing, when you are stripped of everything in the presence of God. . . .
I am very weak.
The situation dubious.
Death does not seem imminent, although an embolism can occur any time again.
I confess to be afraid of a long drawn-out suffering.
It seems to me as if I were ready to die, although—as it looks to me—some powerful thoughts are still flickering like lightnings in a summer night.
Yet they are not mine, they belong to God, as everything else which bears mentioning.
Please write again to me.
You have a purity of purpose which is beneficial. . . .
I don’t know whether I can answer your next letter again.
But let us hope—
