In Him We Live


I ascended to what is highest in my soul and, Lo, the Word loomed loftier. I descended to the depths and found that he was yet deeper. If I looked out, I saw him beyond my outer limits. If I gazed within, more inward yet was he. It was then that I realized the truth of what I had read, “In him we live and move and have our being.” Happy the soul in whom dwells the One by whom she lives; happy the soul who lives for and is moved by such a One. ~St Bernard of Clairvaux
