Mirror Of Eternity

Place your mind

before the mirror of eternity!
Place your soul

in the brilliance of glory!
Place your heart in the figure

of the divine substance!
And transform your whole being

into the image of the Godhead Itself
through contemplation!
So that you too may feel

what His friends feel
as they taste the hidden sweetness
which God Himself has reserved
from the beginning
for those who love Him.

~Claire of Assisi

(1194 to 1253 Italian Saint,

founded the Order of Poor Ladies,

a monastic religious order

for women in the Franciscan tradition)
