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 Hildegard of Bingen’s “Hymn.”
I flame out––intense, godly Life––over the shining fields of corn,
I glow in the shimmer of the fire’s embers,
I burn in the sun and the moon and the stars.
The secret Life of Me breathes in the wind
and holds all things together soulfully.
