A lead in to Christianity without borders Apr 30, 2009
To read this little illustrated book is to find that a 14th century woman can relate to any of us who want to appreciate God before talking to Him and that talking to Him will be the most natural thing. 'Stop for now', she appears to suggest 'take stock of your life - outdoors if possible - and begin to love the small things around you. Expect to meet the Creator of everything.' She makes herself known through the slenderest of biographical facts. She was remarkable, because through her few notes, we can feel that love of fellow humans and her own peace as if 700 years didn't separate us.
