God is eternal, and eternity is fire,
and that is God.
And God is not hidden, no silent fire,
but an acting fire.
The Holy Spirit is life-giving life,
Mover of the universe and root of all created being.
She cleans the universe of unfairness,
she repays the debt, and she anoints the wounds.
She is brilliant life, worthy of praise
She breathes and again inspires the universe.
—Hildegard of Bingen
