Elizabeth Clare Prophet introduces you to a remarkable group of mystics who for hundreds of years have practiced their own brand of Christianity - from Origen of Alexandria and Meister Eckhart to Catherine of Siena and Mother Teresa.
The Christian mystics talk about spiritual union and the love initiations that accompany it.
Thérèse of Lisieux said that from the age of fourteen she experienced "assaults of love" that consumed her like a veritable flame. "I was in the choir," she once wrote, "when I felt myself suddenly wounded by a dart of fire so ardent that I thought I should die....There is no comparison to describe the intensity of that flame. It seemed as though an invisible force plunged me wholly into fire....But oh! what fire! what sweetness!" So enflamed was she by a love that is beyond this world that she wrote in her autobiography, "O Jesus, my vocation is found at lastmy vocation is love." --Elizabeth Clare Prophet in Roots of Christian Mysticism
