Gertrud von Helfta, Merazhofen Pfarrkirche ChorgestühlLOVE ONE ANOTHER INTENSELY FROM A PURE HEART.
Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.Love never fails. (1 Co 13:4-8, 13)
Pray the Lord himself, the supreme master, to teach you the art of love by the anointing of his Spirit, taking you up as his own disciple, so that, with him as [your] teacher, you may be exercised untiringly in the virtue of charity.(Gertrude the Great, Spiritual Exercise, V)
