Unknowncountry.com offers this sublime sermon for Easter reading. It is one of the greatest things ever said by man in service of God.
It was written by Johannes Eckhart, known as Meister. He was a Dominican monk, a German, who was born in around 1260 and died in approximately 1328. During his lifetime, he was persecuted for heresy and may have been burned at the stake. In recent centuries, religious scholars have recognized him as among the very greatest of philosophers, and have embraced the idea that he was indeed a “man who knew God.” Among Catholics, he has come to be honored along with Saint Augustine and Saint Thomas Aquinas as one of the clearest voices ever raised in the name of God.
