Splendor of Glory

Day 16 to 20, very dark days of the year, are all dedicated to a passage in the Third Letter:

"(11) [Let] not (…) bitterness and confusion envelop you, O Lady most beloved in Christ, joy of the angels, and crown of your sisters. (12) Place your mind in the mirror of eternity; place your soul in the splendor of glory (…).”

Clare recommends Agnes not to worry, but to place her soul in the splendor of glory. She encourages her to enjoy the light and the warmth of God and to feel it enveloping her soul. The question is:

What if I place my soul in the splendor of glory? 


If I place my soul in the splendor of glory I listen beautiful music, and that helps. The card I have pulled is King of Wands from the Victorian Romantic Tarot.
