Tuesday Prayer

Good people,

Most royal greening verdancy,
rooted in the sun,
you shine with radiant light.

In this circle of earthly existence
you shine
so finely,
it surpasses understanding.

God hugs you.
You are encircled
by the arms
of the mystery of God.

-Hildegard of Bingen, Meditations with Hildegard of Bingen, trans. Gabriele Uhlein, O.S. F.
