The Mirror of Eternity

Place your mind before the mirror of eternity! 
Place your soul in the brilliance of glory! 
Place your heart in the figure of the divine substance! 
And transform your whole being into the image of the Godhead Itself 
through contemplation! 
So that you too may feel what His friends feel 
as they taste the hidden sweetness 
which God Himself has reserved 
from the beginning 
for those who love Him.

— Clare of Assisi, from “Francis and Clare: The Complete Works,” 
translated by Regis J. Armstrong, OFM CAP, and Ignatius C. Brady, OFM;
a volume of, The Classics of Western Spirituality Series
