PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011 by Matthew Fox in CHRISTIAN MYSTICS

There is no creation that does not have radiance. Be it greenness or seed, blossom or beauty. It could not be creation without it.” – Hildegard of Bingen

The Theological word for “radiance” is doxa in Greek, which means “glory.” So the radiance that Hildegard refers to is more than just light. However, according to today’s science, atoms – the building blocks of life – contains photons or light waves. This would seem be substantiate what Hildlegard describes, that all creation is in a literal way light itself. Look around you: Do you find a radiance in everything you see? Can you look for it, find it, touch it in everything you see today.”
