Henry Suso (circa 1295 – 1366) was a Dominican friar and German mystic. Suso entered the Dominican order at the age of thirteen. He is believed to have had a profound spiritual experience five years later that awakened in him a deep longing for an inner relationship with the Divine. Suso was one of the leaders of the “Friends of God,” a group of German mystics. He was also well known as a preacher, but his ideas were only truly venerated by small groups of people. His writings became popular during the late middle ages and he is best known for his Little Book of Eternal Wisdom.
Quotes by Henry Suso…
Open up your inward sense, and see and hear.
At this elevation there is no effort, no struggle.
There is nothing pleasurable except what is in harmony with the utmost depths of our divine nature.
What greater pleasure is there than to find myself the one thing that I ought to be, and the whole thing that I ought to be?
