“In this vision he also showed a little thing, the size of a hazelnut in the palm of my hand and it was as round as a ball.I looked at it with my mind’s eye and thought, ‘What can this be?’ And the answer came to me, ‘It is all that is made.’I wondered how it could last for it was so small I thought it might suddenly have disappeared. And the answer in my mind was, ‘It lasts and will last for ever because God loves it; and everything exists in the same way by the love of God.’ In this little thing I saw three properties: the first is that God made it, the second is that God loves it, the third is that God cares for it.”
Revelations Of Divine Love, Chapter 5
