A Contemplative Faith
Let the Earth Keep Silence
Follow PatheosProgressive Christian:
I have found heaven on earth, since heaven is God, and God is in my soul.
— Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity
Just yesterday, I used this quote from Elizabeth of the Trinity for a class I facilitate:
“A few days before her death in 1906, Elizabeth of the Trinity wrote a note to the prioress of her Carmelite monastery. In it, she kept repeating a phrase that could well be a call to everyone: ‘Let yourself be loved. . . LET yourself be loved. . . LET yourself be loved.’”

Thank you for this connection.
This reminds me of Julian’s “taking Jesus as my heaven”…
