Greenness – Christine Valters Paintner

April 29, 2020

Viriditas is Hildegard’s singular idea to illuminate the dynamic interconnectedness and intercommunion of all levels of created life with each other and with God as Source.  Her emphasis on greenness symbolizes the inner dynamism of life in all its burgeoning growth, vibrancy, freshness, and fecundity as emanating from the life-creating and sustaining power of God.”

 Christine Valters Paintner, PhD, The Wisdom of Mary and the Sacred Feminine – An Online Self-Study Retreat

What idea, word or phrase speaks to you as way to illuminate the dynamic interconnectedness of life with God as Source?

    Is there a danger of worshiping the creation rather than the creator.

    • There can be. As I read Hildegard, creation is one of the lenses through which our Creator reveals God’s self to us.
