Thought for the day, Monday 21st March

“The soul is a breath of living spirit, that with excellent sensitivity, permeates the entire body to give it life.
Just so, the breath of the air makes the earth fruitful.
Thus the air is the soul of the earth, moistening it, greening it…

The air, with its penetrating strength, characterizes the victorious banner that is trust.
It gives light to the fire’s flame and sprinkles the imagination of believers with the dew of hope.
Thus does trust show the way.
Those who breathe this dew long for heavenly things.
They carry within refreshing, fulfilling, greening love, with which they hasten to the aid of all.
With the passion of heavenly yearning, they produce rich fruit.”

Hildegard of Bingen (1098 – 1179)
