The Word within the word

“O Lord Jesus, I ask of you no other reward, no other blessedness, no other joy than this: to understand in all purity and without being led astray by faulty contemplation your words which are inspired by the Holy Spirit…For as there is no place in which it is more proper to seek you than in your words, so there is no place where you are more clearly discovered than in your words. For there you abide, and there you lead all who seek and love you. There you have prepared for your elect the spiritual banquet of true knowledge and passing you minister to them.”

John Scotus Eriugena, Periphyseon 5:1010D
