Prayer of the Day: The Dance

By the Web Editors 04-30-2013
I cannot dance, Lord, unless you lead me. If you want me to leap with abandon, you must intone the song. Then I shall leap into love, from love into knowledge, from knowledge into enjoyment, and from enjoyment beyond all human sensations. There I want to remain, yet want also to circle higher still. -A prayer by Mechthild of Magdeburg
