Mechthild Magdeburg

Lord, since Thou hast taken from me all that I had of Thee, yet of Thy grace leave me the gift which every dog has by nature: that of being true to Thee in my distress, when I am deprived of all consolation.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you love the justice of Jesus Christ more than you fear human judgment then you will seek to do compassion. Compassion means that if I see my friend and my enemy in equal need, I shall help them both equally. Justice demands that we seek and find the stranger, the broken, the prisoner and comfort them and offer them our help. Here lies the holy compassion of God that causes the devils much distress.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The soul is made of love and must ever strive to return to love. Therefore, it can never find rest nor happiness in other things. It must lose itself in love. By its very nature it must seek God, who is love....More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
That prayer has great power which a person makes with all his might. It makes a sour heart sweet, a sad heart merry, a poor heart rich, a foolish heart wise, a timid heart brave, a sick heart well, a blind heart full of sight, a cold heart ardent. It draws down the great God into the little heart; it drives the hungry soul up into the fullness of God; it brings together two lovers, God and the soul, in a wondrous place where they speak much of love.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A fish cannot drown in water,
A bird does not fall in air.
In the fire of creation,
God doesn't vanish:
The fire brightens.
Each creature God made
must live in its own true nature;
How could I resist my nature,
That lives for oneness with God?More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The day of my spiritual awakening was the day I saw and knew I saw all things in God and God in all things.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A Light of utmost splendor glows on the eyes of my soul. Therein have I seen the inexpressible ordering of all things, and recognized God's unspeakable glory -- that incomprehensible wonder -- the tender caress between God and the soul...the unmingled joy of union, the living love of eternity as it now is and evermore shall be.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Those who would know much, and love little, will ever remain at but the beginning of a godly life.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Prayer is naught else but a yearning of soul ... it draws down the great God into the little heart; it drives the hungry soul up to the plenitude of God; it brings together these two lovers, God and the soul, in a wondrous place where they speak much of love.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I was created in love. For that reason nothing can express my beauty nor liberate me except love alone.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Stupidity is sufficient unto itself. Wisdom can never learn enough.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
God, give me by Your grace what You give to dogs by nature.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
From suffering I have learned this: that whoever is sore wounded by love will never be made whole unless she embraces the very same love which wounded her.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One day I saw with the eyes of my eternity in bliss and without effort, a stone. It tasted sweet, like heavenly herbs.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Lord, you are my lover, my longing, my flowing stream, my sun, and I am your reflection.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Fish cannot drown in water. Birds cannot sink in air. This has God given to all creatures, to foster and seek their own nature. How then can I withstand mine?More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I cannot dance, O Lord, unless You lead me.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have seen a place-its name is Eternal Hatred It is built in the deepest abyss of the stones of mortal sin. Pride was the first stone-this was seen in Lucifer.More Mechthild Magdeburg [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
