"Madonna Between the Veils," Giovanni de Canali
“Madonna Between the Veils,” Giovanni de Canali

“Holy Spirit,

giving life to all life,

moving all creatures,

root of all things,

washing them clean,

wiping out their mistakes,

healing their wounds,

you are our true life,

luminous, wonderful,

awakening the heart

from its ancient sleep.”

~ Hildegard of Bingen, translated by Robert Bly

For another of Hildegard of Bingen’s wise insights (about taking back our own listening, and reclaiming our own voice), take a look at Wise Women & Mid-Life Blooming and Hildegard & Veriditas from the Sophia’s Children Archives.
