Beatrix Potter fans rejoice!

Yes, in my spiritual reading I came upon Good News for Mrs. Tiggy Winkle:

"The high mountains are a refuge for the stags, and the rock for the hedgehogs" (Psalm 104:18). Then let them have mountains of intelligence who can already make the leap of contemplation. But let the rock be a refuge for the hedgehogs because we children, covered by the spines of our sins, even though we cannot understand profound truths, are safe in the haven of our rock. viz. in the Faith of Christ.

Gregory the Great, Homilies on the Prophet Ezekiel I.9.31
