The soul is made of love and must ever strive to return to love. Therefore, it can never find rest nor happiness in other things. It must lose itself in love. By its very nature it must seek God, who is love.

Mechthild of Magdeburg

    Mechtild had a long life and seeing visions while she was 12 years old…
