Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
The devil, envious of man who was made in the image of God, thought that by deceiving and bringing him to ruin, he could turn his righteous Maker against him and condemn him, as the devil himself was due for condemnation. But the devil did not know God. To know God is not only to know that he is righteous, but more integrally to his nature, that he is love. And so God came to man's rescue: mercy and truth were met together in the womb of the blessed Virgin, and the image of God was restored to perfection by the Incarnate One. Sermon for the Annunciation.
