A description of the experience
Richard Rolle - Incendium Amoris
The rapt lover sings the song of a loving soul bursting forth, who ardently and clearly expands in the refining fire of love and devotion.
That sweet, honey mediator breathes upon the soul.
Inside is heard chanting and internal surges fold one into a pleasant embrace.
This is the bliss of comfort and the intoxication of heat.
The rose is red and shining.
A brilliant white Light above melts the snow.
Inflamed by the fire of the divine, the purity of conscience is adorned in white, walking.
To this end, therefore, he has been taken up into the secret
A melody remains in the mind, laden with honey
So long in abundance of burning; full of marrow, offered up as the burnt-offering to Christ.
