Sophia




There is in all visible things an invisible fecundity, 
a dimmed light, a meek namelessness, a hidden whole-
ness. This mysterious Unity and Integrity is 
Wisdom, the Mother of all, Natura naturans
There is in all
things an inexhaustible sweetness and purity,
 a silence that is a fount of action and joy. It rises up in 
wordless gentleness and flows out to me from the 
unseen roots of all created being, welcoming me tenderly,
saluting me with indescribable humility. 
This is at once my own being, my own nature, and the 
Gift of my Creator's Thought and Art within me, 
speaking as Hagia Sophia, 
speaking as my sister, Wisdom
- Thomas Merton (Maria Lodewicus)
