Devotion II

Here is another excerpt from the writings of Mechthild of Magdeburg from the book Women Pray:

"Love penetrates the senses
and storms the soul
with all its power.

When love grows
in the soul,
then it rises up
with great longing to God,
and flowingly expands
to receive the miracle
that breaks in upon it.

Love melts through the soul
and into the senses.

And so the body too
gains its part
and conforms in all ways
to love."

- Mechthild of Magdeburg
