God’s Word is in all creation, visible and invisible. The Word is living, being, spirit, all verdant greening, all creativity. All creation is awakened, called, by the resounding melody, God’s invocation of the Word. This Word manifests itself in every creature.”—Hildegard of Bingen
The writings of St. Hildegard of Bingen reflect on God’s loving revelation of himself to humanity and the marvel of the redemptive action of that Divine intervention. Wonderfully, her writings are accompanied by several illuminations of her mystic visions. Scholars believe she directed the design of the artwork herself.
