Angelus Silesius

True prayer requires no word

True prayer requires no word, no chant
no gesture, no sound.
It is communion, calm and still
with our own godly Ground.

~ Angelus Silesius

The light of splendor

The light of splendor shines in the middle of the night. Who can see it? A heart which has eyes and watches.

~ by Angelus Silesius

Unless you aren't there

God, whose love and joy
are present everywhere,
Can't come to visit you
unless you aren't there.

~ Angelus Silesius

Born in me

Christ could be born a thousand times in Galilee -- but all in vain until he is born in me.
~ Angelus Silesius
