Reflection 4.22.15

The earth is at the same time mother,
she is mother of all that is natural,
mother of all that is human,
She is the mother of all,
for contained in her
aret he seeds of all.

The earth of humankind
contains all moistness,
all verdancy,
all germinating power.

It is in so many ways fruitful.
All creation comes from it.
Yet it forms not only the basic
raw material for humankind,
but also the substance
of the incarnation
of God’s son.

~Hildegard of Bingen

    Beautiful.

    Thanks to the staff at Immanuel.

    To the brilliant and courageous Hildegard of Bingen
    and to those who guarded and later translated her work, preserving it for generations to come.
