Prayer: Mechtild of Magdeburg

The faithful soul walks in a wondrous and lofty way. The soul leads the senses as someone with sight might lead a blind person. In this way, the soul is free and travels without any grief in the heart. Now the soul sees that it wishes nothing other than what the Lord wills, for the Lord wills only what is best for the soul.
