Underhill: the eyes of love

Friday, August 21, 2015
    “Leave her alone,” said Jesus. “Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want. But you will not always have me. She did what she could. She poured perfume on my body beforehand to prepare for my burial.”
    —Mark 14:6-8 (NIV)
    All things are perceived in the light of charity, and hence under the aspect of beauty; for beauty is simply Reality seen with the eyes of love.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), Mysticism, Doubleday, 1911, p. 206 (see the book)
    See also Mark 14:3-9; Matt. 26:6-13; Mark 10:21; 1 Cor. 13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your love lightens all my life.
