St. Clare

Place your mind in the mirror of eternity;
place your soul in the splendour of glory,
place your heart in the icon of the divine substance
and transform your whole self through contemplation into an image of his Godhead.
Do this in order that you yourself may feel what his friends feel on tasting the hidden sweetness,
that which God himself has kept from the beginning for those who love Him.
