This little gift book presents writings by:

  • Hildegard of Bingen
  • Clare of Assisi
  • Mechtild of Magdeburg
  • Hadewijch of Antwerp
  • Marguerite Porete
  • Julian of Norwich
  • Catherine of Siena

 

Each of these women mystics burns with the same fire, but each in their own way. And today, more that ever before, we believe the mystics have a message for us; their lives and their profound understanding of reality cross the boundaries of time and find an echo in our hearts. The spiritual experiences of these women encourage us in our own search.
