The Divine Within

A brother asked Arsenius to give him advice. He said to him, "As far as possible, try hard to make your inner progress as God would have it, and by this, overcome the passions of the body."

He also said, "If we seek God, He will appear to us; If we grasp Him, He will stay with us."

~~God Enthroned from the Nuremberg Chronicle. The two artists who were responsible for overseeing the design and illustration of the Chronicle were Michael Wohlgemut (1434-1519) and his stepson Wilhelm Pleydenwurff (c. 1450-1494).
