Daily Lectio Divina: Gertrude the Great

Daily Lectio Divina: Gertrude the Great

Episode 574

In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re continuing our series on Gaining Wisdom using selections from A Little Daily Wisdom: Christian Women Mystics by Carmen Acevedo Butcher. Today we’re using a selection from Gertrude the Great’s Spiritual Exercises.

Lord, open on me…the viscera of your love and kindness….Break over me the fountains of unlimited mercy. Absorb me in the depths of Your love. Drown me in the flood of Your living love, like a drop loses itself in the ocean’s fullness….Let the raindrops of Your kind love make me cling to you.
